Music by Martí Meléndez and Adri González

While it may have been largely forgotten, jazz music was born to be danced to. Its unique nature, however, demands a dance style that fits with the breaks, beats and blue notes that distinguish the rhythmic cadences of a syncopated language. Of all the techniques that have transformed jazz into movement, tap dance is considered to be one of the oldest. One its greatest exponents, christened “Butterfly” by bebop master Jimmy Slyde, is Roxane, the first female tap dancer to have received the Bessie Award for contribution to the modernization of the art of tap, and who was dubbed "the John Coltrane of dance” by the New York Times. This program presents a truly deluxe performance, accompanied by musicians Martí Meléndez and Adri González.
