Jazz Power Initiative and the National Jazz Museum in Harlem continue its 2021 season of INTERGENERATIONAL JAZZ POWER JAM with “Swinging Into Spring Dance Jam,” showcasing the art of improvisation, and featuring acclaimed dancers and choreographers Mickey Davidson, Shireen Dickson, Ximena Salgado and Max Pollak. Audiences of all ages are invited to participate!
Hosted by Jazz Power Initiative’s Managing and Artistic Director Eli Yamin, March’s Intergenerational Jazz Power Dance Party Jam is a fun, friendly-family celebration featuring performances by the duos of dancer Mickey Davidson and pianist Frank Owens; dancer Ximena Salgado and percussionist Annette A. Aguilar; dancer Max Pollak and bassist Jennifer Vincent; dancer Shireen Dickson and pianist Eli Yamin.
Celebrating the creative, improvisational experience between diverse musical and dance traditions of the African diaspora, these intergenerational performances reflect its wide range and vitality across the Americas today, from swing and tap to mambo and merengue, with insightful conversation about how music is made for dance.
