FEATURING THE LINDY HOP DANCE COMPANY &
THE HARRY STRUTTERS HOT RHYTHM ORCHESTRA
Friday 10 July
7.30pm STAHL THEATRE
TICKETS: £23 & £19.50 adult / £6 u17
Take a step back into 1920s & 30s New York City and head through the doors of Harlem’s hottest nightclub, 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 breathtaking routines. The exhilarating dance and music of the world-famous Cotton Club is recreated by the fabulous Lindy Hop Dance Company alongside The Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra, featuring American vocalist Marlene Hill and compere/vocalist Megs Etherington.
“A positive pleasure to behold.” The Guardian
Performance ends at approximately 9.30pm
