The Bessie Award-Nominated Darrah Carr Dance unites with jazz vocalist Tara O’Grady and her Black Velvet Band for Celtic Jazz Tryst. Celtic Jazz Tryst is a playful fusion of swing dance, tap rhythms, and Irish dance steps. Artistic Director Darrah Carr premieres exuberant new works for the cast of championship Irish dancers set to O’Grady’s jaunty sound spanning Celtic, folk, funk, blues, jazz, and swing. As a special highlight of the program, guest choreographer Seán Curran evokes the romance and charm of the Big Band Era with his own whimsical fusion work. Opportunities to engage with the Artists include: Master class on Thurs, Nov 10; Specially Priced Family Shows on Sat, Nov 19 and Sun, Nov 20; an Artist Talkback on Sat, Nov 19; and a Pre-Show Conversation on Sun, Nov 20.
