Harlem Hot Shots is a group of Swedish dancers whose specialty is entertainment authentic to the Swing Era. With the deepest appreciation and passion for dance styles that originally derived from Harlem, their mission is to keep spreading knowledge and the tradition of swing dancing. Dances such as the lindy hop, charleston, jazz and tap make up the company’s repertoire which also includes acrobatics, singing and comedy.
Harlem Hot Shots is artistic, professional and in a way re-creative. All of the company’s activities are inspired by the ideals of the Swing Era, focusing on both faithful tributes just as original choreography with a framework that is true to the period. High energy, improvisation and tight rhythms.
No modernizing. No compromising. Instead, the music, dances and overall presentation all emanate directly from genuine sources, such as authentic material from old film clips as well as many meetings and collaborations with dancers and musicians who were active in during the 1930s and 40s. No intermediaries or distortions. No superficial adaptations or transparent clichés. Simply pure swing.
