Richard Badu has been teaching classes and workshops in the various forms of swing dancing—Lindy, Charleston; East and West coast swing, Blues, St. Louis shag and Cajun jitterbug—since 1989, shortly after he began working with Frankie Manning. He is a founder of the Triangle Swing Dance Society, and he co-founded the performance troupes Swing Steppin’ and Swing Feats. Richard teaches Lindy in the dance program at Duke University and is a regular teacher at the annual Beantown Lindy Camp in Boston. He also co-founded the award-winning music group Big Zucchini Washboard Bandits, learning Cajun dancing during the band’s annual tours to the Bayou. Richard has a background in wushu and teaches T’ai-Chi, locally and in workshops for dance camps. Richard’s background in music and martial arts gives his teaching a grounded focus in connection, energy and musicality. Movie credits include dance consultant to choreographer Toni Basil and actress Julia Roberts for the film Something To Talk About; and choreographer and featured dancer in Chesterfield, a Black Mariah feature film.
