It's cool, it's dark, and it is only in the City of Angels for a few more nights. The American Contemporary Ballet is presenting an experience that feels enthralling, a little bit dangerous – and the type of contagious entertainment that is sure to stick with you long after you’re gone. The jazz performance will feature the best jazz musicians in LA, serenading you with melodies from the icons of the genre: Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Jelly Roll Morton.

Not only is this a jazz performance, but it’s a full-blown spectacle, complete with comedy, dancers, and an atmosphere promised to be so electric that it will feel as if you are being transported in time. Attendees will be able to immerse themselves in the allure of a semi-secretive setting of a nostalgic speakeasy, where every corner holds an aura of adventure and rebellion – encouraging guests to embrace the feeling of it all.

The evening also showcases The Charlestons, a dance that's as infectious as it is exhilarating. Audiences will be dazzled by not one, but two brand-new ballets that exceed the boundaries of movement and expression. From the subtle grace of a pas de deux to the explosive energy of a full ensemble, the dancers will leave you breathless with their skill and artistry. ACB Director Lincoln Jones adds, “It makes the music feel more immediate and alive. Dancing to it lets something loose in you that you can’t control. And that’s the whole idea.”

ACB Jazz invites patrons to surrender to the spirit the night has to offer, all under the roof of the Bank of America Plaza in DTLA. The performances will be going on now through March 22.
