We had the pleasure of spending some time with Sonny Allen. Sonny is a Harvest Moon Ball champion dancer who also does mambo, foxtrot and tap. Sonny talks candidly about his childhood, Savoy Ballroom experiences and and life as a dancer. He was personal friends with many well known musicians and dancers including Sammy Davis Jr.
Big thanks to Chris Lee for arranging this interview, Kim and David Jacoby for letting us film it in their lovely home and the staff at the annual Swingin' At The Savoy event in Oakland, California (check them out at www.swinginatthesavoy.com)
