About the event

The Tranky Doo (also called Trunky Doo) is a jazz dance choreography.

Some say it was choreographed by Frankie Manning himself and ″...named in tribute to the chorus girl who inspired it.

At that time, it was danced to Tuxedo Junction, however many modern-day performances of the dance use other swing jazz songs. It is most common these days to perform the dance with the song "Dipsy Doodle" by Ella Fitzgerald because the dance appears in the Spirit Moves documentary film with a playback of the song.
