Convergence 2017 - The 31st Annual Jazz & Tap Dance Festival
Jazz the house - an American dance event!
Enjoy America's indigenous dance art form - Jazz Dance at Convergence 2017 - the 31st Annual Jazz & Tap Dance Festival. "A dance festival with energy and soul."
Convergence 2017 is a presentation of the evolution of American jazz dance with the other dance styles, fusing them into new, appealing presentations that are vital, fresh, rhythmic, energetic. The show is representative of our national dance spirit as it synthesizes the dance art that honors original street dance techniques, jazz dance with contemporary inspiration.
Choreographers today are mixing and merging the classic entertainment dance styles of jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, and Broadway. Each participating dance company will bring something unique to the stage that may blend jazz dance with hip hop, tap, or modern dance with a contemporary flair.
Convergence 2017 is produced as a collaboration by Marilyn York, the Dancin' Unlimited Artistic Director, with four other area dance companies. Joining Dancin' Unlimited, are Encore Performers, iMpulse (Metropolitan School of the Arts), JaM Youth Project, and MYTE (Metropolitan Youth Tap Ensemble).
As a totally new artistic revue, Convergence 2017 will be performed for only three shows: Saturday, March 18 at 7:30 PM, and Sunday, March 19 at 2 PM and 5:30 PM.
