Frankie (Musclehead) Manning, 94, a dancer and award-winning choreographer celebrated as one of the pioneers of the Lindy Hop, a breathlessly acrobatic dance style of the 1930s and 1940s, died Monday in New York City of pneumonia. The effortlessly nimble Manning was a star attraction of Harlem's Savoy Ballroom as a young man and brought to swing dance a flair for the theatrical that helped catapult the Lindy Hop from ballrooms to stage and screen.
