Summary
An explosive 1930s drama following a jazz band in London during a time of huge change. Dancing on the Edge follows black jazz musicians, the Louis Lester Band, as they find fame amongst the parties and performances of London's upper class society. Although many recoil at the performance of black musicians in polite society, the city's more progressive socialites, including members of the Royal Household, take the band under their wing. But when the band becomes entangled in their shadowy world, it results in a suspected murder. The walls begin to close in on Louis and the band
