American Dance Festival: Luke Hickey
Please note: Due to inclement weather, American Dance Festival has canceled this evening and tomorrow`s outdoor performances at the NCMA. ADF will reach out to ticketholders via email by 7 pm with information regarding a new indoor location for these performances.
Building on the success of last fall’s performance series at the NCMA, the American Dance Festival returns to Raleigh September 8—11 to present a series of outdoor performances in association with the North Carolina Museum of Art.
Chapel Hill native Luke Hickey presents the percussive revue A Little Old, A Little New. Directed and choreographed by Hickey, the work accentuates the powerful synergy created when tap dancers and jazz musicians are in conversation, while offering an exciting array of historical and contemporary musical explorations. This high-energy and virtuosic evening of world-class dance and live music offers something for everyone, leaving the audience feeling further connected to the treasured American art form of tap dance.
Program lasts approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.
