All live music with all live dancers are hitting the stage at UMD, with styles ranging from Celtic, to Afro-Cuban, to indie pop, to experimental, ballet, modern, jazz, body percussion and tap. The concert is presented by the UMD Theatre Department at the Marshall Performing Arts Center.

The director of the show, Rebecca Katz Harwood, stopped by the set, along with guest choreographer/dancer Max Pollack.

Max will be performing 'rhumba tap', which can be seen in the video. He tap dances, while using his hands to drum on his body and sing at the same time. Max will not only perform in the show, he has also choreographed some other dances in the show.

"I would like the audience to feel the energy of live music," Max says. He really emphasizes the excitement of seeing live music and live dancing on stage at the same time.

Rebecca, the director, says that, "we have people coming from a...different range. We have local artists, students, faculty, local professional musicians," and all of these people are coming together, with Max, and even the Minnesota Ballet for one show, to make a great dance concert.

You can catch this great show Thursday through Saturday night, February 20-22, at 7:30 PM, and Sunday February 23 at 2:00 PM at the Mainstage Theatre at the Marshall Performing Arts Center on UMD's campus.
