Jazz Tap Ensemble, known for its originality and artistic collaborations, hits a high note with jazz vocalist Kate McGarry (“Mercy Streets”) when she joins the Ensemble dancers and musicians for a week of exuberant tap dance, brilliant jazz music and vibrant song. JTE Artistic Director Lynn Dally once again displays her choreographic genius, applying McGarry’s vocal jazz interpretations to the dancers’ tap improvisations and the moving, original compositions of Music Director Jerry Kalaf (“Just Like Old Times”).
