Publisher Summary

On March 12, 1926, the doors of the Savoy Ballroom swung open in Harlem. It was a night to remember, when blacks and whites, rich and poor, all came together to dance!

This inspiring story of the world-famous dancing palace and home of the Lindy Hoppers is told from a father to his son, Happy Feet. It’s Happy Feet’s favorite story—after all, he was born on the very night the Savoy opened. And he hopes that one day he’ll make his own dancing debut at the legendary ballroom . . . because with a lot of hard work and a little Savoy magic, anything is possible.

Includes an author’s note with biographies of Swing-Era dancers.
