Sean Foran: “If you’re curious as to how modern jazz could be interpreted into dance, come take a look!”

“We’re always watching the dancers and responding to them – sometimes closely following the actions with musical cues, at other times creating a dynamic and textural sense of the emotion in the dance through the music.
