A one-night only performance of world premiere, Fats Waller’s Rhythm, by celebrated choreographer Morgan McEwen to music by legendary Harlem stride pianist and composer, Fats Waller at Aaron Davis Hall. Six of New York’s finest jazz musicians will be led by acclaimed bassist and composer Benjamin Gallina, who is responsible for the evening’s musical arrangement and additional musical material. This will be an evening of explosive music and dance as some of New York City’s top ballet dancers grace the stage with power and artistry. With McEwen described by The New York Times as “equipped with essential tools: an eye for shaping the arc of a dance as carefully as the transitions and details within it.”, this performance is sure to enthrall audiences.
