Dance Manhattan Studios
: Elena Iannucci and Teddy Kern started this dance studio around the same time George Gee
started the New York incarnation of his musical organization.
New York Swing Dance Society
: In May 1987, a young Pittsburgher known as George Gee
traveled to the Cat Club
in Manhattan to perform at the first dance event held by the New York Swing Dance Society
remembers the affectionate response; he
heard later there was much discussion the next day up in Harlem dance halls of that "swingin' Chinaman from Steeltown!
SWING46 Jazz & Supper Club
: Not only was George Gee's
orchestra the first swing band to appear on the SWING46 stage during its 1997 grand opening, but George
also helped develop its "All Swing, All the Time" format as the club's first music director.
Thank you, George
, for a wedding night of dancing that we'll never forget.
My man, Georgie
, has a bright future in the swing business!
towers above the competition!"
