—————————————

What got us going was that it was
Norma Miller’s birthday .

Mr. G   used to Chauffeur and chaperon her around at the
American Lindy Hop Championships .

Known to many as the Queen of Swing,
Norma Miller is an author, choreographer, dancer, comedian and actor
whose career spans over seven decades.
Discovered at the age of twelve at the Savoy Ballroom ,
Ms. Miller has been in show business ever since.

Honored with a 2003 National Heritage Foundation Fellowship from the National Endowments of the Arts for her role in creating and continuing to preserve “the acrobatic style swing dance, known as the Lindy Hop” .

Norma Miller is one of the creators of the acrobatic style of swing dancing known as the Lindy Hop. As a child, she watched the dancers at the legendary Savoy Ballroom perched on the fire escape outside her mother’s Harlem apartment. When she was 12, she was “discovered” dancing outside the Savoy, and in 1934 was invited to join Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers, soon to make an extended tour of Europe.

Upon her return, she appeared in the Marx Brothers’ movie A Day at the Races (1937), and from 1937 to 1940 Miller performed with Ethel Waters. Pursuing a career in both dance and comedy, she began working with comedian Redd Foxx in 1963 and later joined him on the 1970’s television series Sanford and Sonserving as both a stand-up comic and choreographer.

In addition to a rich and long career as a dancer, Miller has become a seminal historian of swing dance. Her biography, Swingin’ at the Savoy: A Memoir of a Jazz Dancer, documents the swing dance era, and her recollections on Ken Burns’s Jazz documentaries provided a first-hand account of the Harlem music and dance scene. Today she teaches swing dance, including master classes at Stanford University and the University of Hawaii, and has choreographed dance scenes in Spike Lee’s Malcolm X and Debbie Allen’sStompin’ at the Savoy.

Ms. Miller is also the subject of author and historian Al Governor’s recently released children’s book, “Stompin at the Savoy”.
Illustrated by Martin French, the book tells the story of her childhood in Harlem and takes readers to Paris, Rio and Hollywood as a teenage Norma travels the world dancing with Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers.

Florida filmmaker John Biffar completed a 72 minute documentary in 2006,
“Queen of Swing” (view the trailer.)
Narrated by Bill Cobbs, Queen of Swing takes an inside look at Norma Miller’s influence in the globalization of America’s jazz culture and her and her fellow artist’s role in racial integration.

Norma Miller was born in Harlem, New York, in 1919.
When the Great Depression began in 1929, Miller and her family moved to a new apartment that faced the Savoy Ballroom.
The Savoy was where Miller began her career as a professional swing dancer.
One day when Miller was 12, she was dancing outside the Savoy and approached by Twist Mouth George  .
Later that year, Miller entered the Savoy Lindy Hop Contest, which was held at the Apollo Theater.  with one of her high school friends. They won the contest.
Winning gave Miller recognition and prompted Herbert “Whitey” White to ask her to join his group, Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers.
The group rose to prominence after winning a contest at the Harvest Moon Ball. Miller and the group performed on Broadway and in several motion pictures.

Swingin at the Savoy: A Memoir of a Jazz Dancer, Miller’s autobiography, describes her early life and meetings with the well-known jazz musicians and swing dancers of that time, including Frankie Manning, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, and Count Basie.

Miller appeared in six films and four television series.
Her most well-known film appearance is in the swing dancing scene in the film Hellzapoppin, featuring Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers.

The 2015 CINETOPIA OPENING NIGHT: Mike Jellick Ensemble & Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet. 

Friday, June 5, 2015 | Live Jazz 7:00pm | Film 9:30pm

This 2015 Cinetopia Festival will open on Friday, June 5th with a FREE outdoor screening on the DIA North Lawn of the stunning new animated film Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet.

The Prophet is among the most popular volumes of poetry ever written, having been published in over forty languages since its publication in 1923. 

The book’s timeless verses have been given new form in this anthology film.

Actor-producer Salma Hayek-Pinault spearheaded this ambitious project, which also includes the voices of Liam Neeson, John Krasinski, Alfred Molina, and Frank Langella.

As their story unfolds, several of Gibran’s most cherished essays — on love, work, children, marriage, and freedom — are brought to life in vignettes directed by some of the world’s foremost animators, among them Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells) and Bill Plympton (Idiots and Angels).

With a score by Gabriel Yared that includes contributions from Glen Hansard, and Yo-Yo Ma, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet it is also a musical collaboration, a richly spiritual experience worthy of Gibran’s lyrical book. 

ABOUT THE JAZZ PERFORMANCE:

This festive kickoff evening will begin at dusk (7pm) on the DIA North lawn with a live jazz interpretation of     –  Holst’s The Planets by the Mike Jellick Ensemble,

followed by the film screening at sundown (9:30pm). 

The Planets, Op. 32, is a seven-movement orchestral suite by the English composer Gustav Holst, written between 1914 and 1916.

Each movement of the suite is named after a planet of the Solar System and its corresponding astrological character as defined by Holst.

A complimentary bike valet will be hosted by the Hellenic Museum, and Azul taco bar will be serving inside the DIA’s Kirby St. entrance.

This event is presented through a partnership of the Detroit Institute of Arts and Midtown Detroit Inc. 

Visit cinetopiafestival.org for full film descriptions, trailers and dates/times/locations of all screenings and events.
