Grace Arts Presents The Zest Collective (Zest) from New York City with deep roots in South Florida. Founder and Creative Director, Gentry George, of Zest, a Miami native, has prepared a power-packed program beginning with a youthful Indie rocker Scott James’ ballad ‘Go on Jane’ to Zest’s authentic and fresh blend of ballet and modern dance; followed by a dancers’ duet improvisation with local hip hop Artist, ‘Felix’ (of his band, Fusik and back-up for the popular band, Mayday) with choreography exploring urban life extremes. A gorgeous rendition of ‘Suddenly there’s a Valley’ by Gogi Grant and a solo work by George is a special treat followed by the dance finale – a twenty (20) minute riveting musical collage featuring Elvis Presley “Crying in the Chapel,” Inez Matthews’ soaring voice singing “What a Chile,” and an engrossing composition ‘Spring Fever’ by Iranian pianist, Peyman Yazdanian, punctuated by poetry and iconic speeches about abandoning fear and embracing one’s destiny. For the entire hour, the audience joins the dancers exploring the stage with award winning style and zeal!
