Jazz Moves Take 2

BalletMet of Columbus performs a groundbreaking fusion of dance and music glorifying the past, present and future of American dance and jazz. The electrifying program features especially commissioned dance works and music by renowned artists from around the country. Together, the dance and music touches on the legendary figures of the 1950s and the unstoppable energy that propels today’s artists forward.
In this collaboration, five BalletMet choreographers created 15 substantial dance numbers. The dancers will be accompanied by a pre-recorded rendering of the original music as performed by the Columbus Jazz Orchestra.
In 2007, BalletMet was honored by the Greater Columbus Arts Council with the Distinguished Award for their collaboration and performance of jazz and dance in “Jazz Moves.”
