Convergence 2017 – 31st Annual Jazz & Tap Dance Festival

March 18, 2017 - March 19, 2017


Convergence 2017

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.

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).

“A dance festival with energy and soul.”

Convergence 2017 will held at the new BalletNova Fredgren Studio Theatre, located at 3443 Carlin Springs Road (Bailey’s Crossroads), Falls Church, Virginia.

Parking is free and the theater doors open 15 minutes prior to each performance. Please arrive early to facilitate parking and getting to your seat.
