    In the 1930's The Cotton Club Boys were the Cotton Clubs stock class act dance troupe. Meaning they were put together for the Cotton Club and would dance in unison, gracefully doing exactly the same thing in unison, in great looking clothes. Originally six male dancers increased to ten who excelled at drill formations.
