SWINGING AT THE COTTON CLUB

 

FEATURING THE LINDY HOP DANCE COMPANY

& THE HARRY STRUTTERS HOT RHYTHM ORCHESTRA

SATURDAY 26TH AUGUST 8PM

This sensational live music show takes audiences on a journey back in time, stepping back into 1920s and ‘30s New York City and through the doors of Harlem’s hottest night club – The Cotton Club! Performances by Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Fats Waller would have had the club swinging – whilst dancers such as Bojangles Robinson and the Nicholas Brothers lit-up the stage with their breath-taking routines.

In this show, the exhilarating dance of the famous Cotton Club is recreated by the fabulous Lindy Hop Dance Company, the UK’s finest, authentic Jazz Dance Company and the show’s special guest tap-dancer. Alongside them The Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra, featuring American vocalist Marlene Hill and compere/vocalist Megs Etherington, are specialists in recreating the jazz and hot dance music of the 1920s and ‘30s with characteristic drive and visual appeal.
