30th Annual Jazz & Tap Dance Festival

Enjoy America’s indigenous dance art form – Jazz Dance at Convergence – the 30th Annual Jazz & Tap Dance Festival 2016
Dancin’ Unlimited Jazz Dance Company presents Convergence 2016 as its 30th Annual Jazz & Tap Dance Festival. Convergence 2016 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.
The 30th Annual Jazz & Tap Dance Festival is at 8 PM on Saturday, March 12, 2016, and 4 PM on Sunday, March 13, 2016 at the Northern Virginia Community College – Annandale Camps Theater.
