Swinging At The Cotton Club
Featuring The Jiving Lindy Hoppers & Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra
Take a step back into 1920s New York City and through the doors of Harlem's hottest nightclub, 'The Cotton Club'!
‘Swinging at The Cotton Club’ is the action-packed show celebrating the music, dance, and songs of the Cotton Club – New York City’s famous nightclub of the 1920s and ‘30s.
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 breathtaking routines.
In this show, the exciting dance and music of the Cotton Club is recreated by the fabulous Jiving Lindy Hoppers, the world’s premier jazz dance company and Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra featuring vocalist Marlene Hill and compere/vocalist Megs Etherington.
“A positive pleasure to behold”
The London based Jiving Lindy Hoppers worked themselves and their unbuttoned audience into a fine lather ... their collective performances manage to retain the wholly spontaneous, improvisatory, uninhibited spirit of swing dance in its heyday"
