Swinging at the Cotton Club featuring The Jiving Lindy Hoppers and Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra, step back into 1920s New York City and through the doors of Harlem’s hottest nightclub, The Cotton Club, at Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts on October 12th.
Performances by Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Lena Horne 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 music and dance routines are recreated by the fabulous Jiving Lindy Hoppers, the world’s premier jazz dance company and the exciting Harry Strutters Hot rhythm Orchestra – who together communicate the exuberance of the music and dance of the Cotton Club.
“A positive pleasure to behold” The Guardian
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” The Washington Post
