"Dancing in the Hood" is now in the Valley with Chester Whitmore and his Opus One Big Band. Come dance East Coast/West Coast/Lindy Hop Ballroom/Salsa (and more!) to a LIVE 19 piece orchestra lead by the master himself, Chester Whitmore. The orchestra will re-create the hot Big Band and Jazz sounds of the 1920's, 30's and 40's. Their material includes many popular tunes from the Cotton Club and Savoy Ballroom, with musical forces such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Chick Webb, Cab Calloway and great Latin musicians of the time.
