Cole Porter, Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers all come to toe-tapping life on the Peter Jay Sharp stage in this music-fueled trip down memory lane. Join Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra as the talented ensemble presents period music, dance and fashion from the '20s to the '50s. Part of the Sleeping Around Festival, the evening captures all the romance, mystery and magic of the grand ballrooms of the great New York hotels during the golden age of big band, jazz and swing.

Reviews & Ratings
Nimbaya! is a troupe of women from West Africa playing the djembe, an instrument historically reserved for male players. These female artists have made a name for themselves in choosing to become percussion players, demonstrating their desire to control their destiny and lead themselves out of a life of poverty through art. A major draw at several international childrens’ festivals including The Seattle International Children Festival, and Canada’s Edmonton International Children Festival, the company’s amazing drumming and high energy dance is both fun and inspirational for children, young and old.
A co-production with World Music Institute.
