  • I was thrilled to be one of the dancers in this amazing film! It was wonderful to have the full period hair, makeup and clothes done. We were swing/jive dancers filming in the beautiful Rivoli Ballroom in London, and were expected to keep the dance energy high all day and it was tough in high heels but very enjoyable. We were privileged to see Rosamund Pike & David Oyelowo dancing too. I can't wait to see the finished film!
