Jazz the house - An American dance event!

Enjoy America's indigenous dance art form - Jazz Dance at this celebrated event - the Annual Jazz & Tap Dance Festival 2015.

Dancin' Unlimited Jazz Dance Company proudly presents its signature annual jazz dance event!  Back for its 29th season the Annual Jazz & Tap Dance Festival fills the auditorium with energy and soul as area dance companies showcase their newest creations in jazz, tap and hip-hop.  This is the only major jazz dance festival in the Washington, DC metropolitan area and is a rare opportunity to witness a large-scale tribute to American's indigenous dance art form.

Jazz dance, whose roots extend deep into the cultural soil of Louisiana, has traveled from the streets of New Orleans to Broadway and to the concert stage. Contemporary jazz dance is a powerful fusion of original jazz dance styles with other forms of dance ranging from classical ballet to popular street dance. As a living artistic history, jazz dance stems from the heart of a nation never at rest. Kinetic yet fluid, technically acute yet hugely entertaining, jazz dance reflects the diversity of our nation and celebrates its energy. Jazz dance is "Made in America!"

"This show jazzes the house, puts swing in your bones, a tap to your fingers and a beat to your walk," says Marilyn York, Festival Director.

Dance companies featured at this year's Festival are:
* Dancin' Unlimited
* Encore Performers
* Center Stage Dance
* iMpulse
* MYTE
* Tandem
* fusiondance
* Motion X Dance DC

Jazz dance is a true American art form, with 20th century styles evolving and merging toward today's 21st century music.  Jazz dance has changed as jazz music itself has advanced and as popular culture has shifted.  York frames the Festival as a sequence of jazz, tap, hip-hop, and musical theater dance numbers, in the vaudevillian or revue style.    

"This is art that honors original street dance techniques with contemporary energy and inspiration," says York.  The power of live jazz, tap and hip-hop dance is in its vitality and rhythmic creativity.  It's always fresh, free, and fundamental to our American spirit.

All tickets are General Admission and the theater doors open 30 minutes prior to the show at 7:30 PM on Saturday (March 14th) and 3:30 PM on Sunday (March 15th). The show is approximately 2 hours in length with one intermission.

All patrons must have a ticket regardless of age.

This show is family friendly.  Parking is free for this show at the NVCC Annandale Campus Parking Lot B.  Please arrive early to facilitate parking and getting to your seat.

The price of the ticket on the day of the show at the door is $27.
