The performance!
The London Starlings are one of the top chorus line and solo jazz troupes in Europe, specialising in 1920s Charleston, tap and vernacular jazz. The Starlings are inspired by the African American chorus dancers of the Harlem Renaissance and the British chorus lines of the early 1900s. In their first post pandemic routine, the Starlings will delight you with a routine set to the one and only Ella Fitzgerald!
