Convergence – 31st Annual Jazz & Tap Festival


Posted on January 19th, by DUJDC in Blog, Performance. No Comments

Dancin’ Unlimited Jazz Dance Company presents Convergence 2017 as its 31st Annual Jazz & Tap Dance Festival. Convergence 2017 is produced as a collaboration by Marilyn York, the Dancin’ Unlimited Artistic Director, with seven other area dance companies.

Convergence 2016 presents 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 – jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, and Broadway.  Each dance company brings something unique to the stage that may blend jazz with hip hop, tap with jazz, or modern dance with a contemporary flair.

Joining Dancin’ Unlimited are Encore Performers, iMpulse (Metropolitan School of the Arts), JaM Youth Project, and MYTE (Metropolitan Youth Tap Ensemble).
