Book by Phaedra Michelle Scott and Alan Govenar 
Based on the book Stompin at the Savoy: The Story of Norma Miller
Collected and Edited by Alan Govenar, Published by Candlewick Press


Ida Moore has big dreams of becoming a dancer at the Savoy Ballroom in 1930s Harlem, the only dance floor in America where Blacks and Whites could mix. Her skill sharpens when she joins the Lindy Hoppers swing dance team and experiences the world. Ida learns life on the dance floor is far simpler than reality as she is pulled in multiple directions between family, dance, and love in this coming-of-age tale. Inspired by the story of dance legend Norma Miller, Stompin’ at the Savoy brings the Swing Era to life on stage, energized by the beat of the street, jump roping, and the intensity of the Lindy Hop, featuring new arrangements of iconic songs by Ella Fitzgerald, Chick Webb, Benny Goodman, and other Big Band hits.
