Hot Shots in big pictures

We made it to the big theatres! Our first full length movie! Following the footsteps of Whitey's!

Dance First

In this film you will see Hot Shots both performing and some more fun things. We took part of the choreographing and the film is basically built on the life in our beloved Chicago Swing Dance Studio. You will see both actors but also social dancing and acting from some of our students and social dancers in our Stockholm scene.

Here is a preview of the official trailer:

The film will be in theatres hopefully during 2014

The film name is based on the famous quote: Dance first. Think later. Itís the natural order.
