The Count Steps in – Lennart Westerlund 2007

Lennart Westerlund and his Harlem Hot Shots is a group of professional Swedish dancers whose specialty is entertainment authentic to the Swing Era. Dances such as jitterbug, Lindy hop, Charleston, black bottom and tap make up the company’s repertoire which also includes acrobatics, singing and comedy. The group has gained international acclaim and performs frequently within Sweden as well as worldwide.
Lennart started this group in 1985 and since the late eighties they have been performing on a regular basis with the Carling family and when daughter Gunhild started her big band around 2004 they perform together in concerthalls in Sweden and throughout Europe.
Today on the 22th of February 2008 we all like to congratulate Lennart with his 50th birthday and dedicate this clip to him with a performance with Gunhild’s Big Band from a concert in Denmark’s Tivoli theater in November 2007.
The young man dancing in the black outfit is Lennart Westerlund.
