The Golden Chestnuts Kill Hellzapoppin’

A group out of Ukraine by the name of The Golden Chestnut, has remade our classic clip from Hellzapoppin’. They even put it back onstage as our dance is meant to be seen! And I love the spin they took on the beginning, great way to make it theatrical.
This lightened up my day like crazy! Go team Ukraine! EXCLAMATION POINT MADE!

From Ukrainian swing kids with love!
