At its swinging heart, jazz is dance music, built on rhythms that have inspired the greatest tap dancers and given rise to dance crazes like the jitterbug. Inspired by the variety of movements in the animal kingdom, Wynton Marsalis’ Spacesis a 10-part suite described as a “jazz Carnival of the Animals” (Financial Times). This evening-length work features two extraordinary dancers interpreting everything from snakes to chickens: Charles “Lil Buck” Riley, a specialist in a street dance called jookin’; and tap dancer Jared Grimes. Join us as we kick off our 60th anniversary season with a roar!

“The world’s pre-eminent large jazz ensemble.” Chicago Tribune

“Heaps of elegance, dexterity and charm… their fleet, floor-skimming steps and the orchestra’s exuberant buzzing worked together like one great colony.” The New York Times
