American tap and jazz meet the dance and music traditions of India! The stars of India Jazz Suites will present an informational and entertaining mini-performance on Thursday, March 22, 2012, at 10:00 a.m. in Fisher Auditorium. Admission is free. This performance is open to any student, group, or class.
This is a cross-cultural, cross-generational, cross-discipline work. This performance is not the full India Jazz Suites production, but set up more as a lecture-demonstration event that will give attendees an overview of the style of the work, its origins, etc. There is also a study guide available, prepared by Dance Affiliates in Philadelphia.
Although the Friday night performance includes six musicians on stage, this matinee event will be with prerecorded music. Depending on the size of the audience, seating may be on the stage with the dancers.
