Rhythm Theory Tap Ensemble is a Florida-based professional tap ensemble. The choreography we perform is created the same way a composer would write a symphony, emphasizing different parts for each instrument working together to create one composition. The methods we use to compose, rehearse and perform come from concepts and processes in Music Theory, which give us the idea for the name Rhythm Theory.


Ballet Arts Centre

Over 50 years ago, Betty Balflour had a vision to create a place were young people could go to learn the art of dance in a safe and encouraging environment, where dancers not only learned proper dance technique but were encouraged to develop their passion for dance. That vision became Ballet Arts Centre. For 36 years her daughter Beth Marks carried on her mother's vision and grew Ballet Arts Centre into one of the most respected dance schools in Jacksonville. In 2011 Beth hired Sydney Keister to teach her advanced ballet and modern classes. Beth admired Sydney's passion for dance and teaching practices grew and in 2015 she passed the torch. Ballet Arts Centre offers technique classes in Ballet, Pointe, Modern, Tap, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Acrobatics and Adult Classes. Today’s performance will feature a group of talented women ages 9-16.

FSCJ DanceWORKS is the repertory company of the Florida State College Jacksonville dance department. Membership is by audition only. Company members have several performance opportunities, work extensively with guest artists, participate in the American College Dance Festival, and have traveled to San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles, for training. The company requires dancers to enroll in Ballet, Modern, and Dance Repertory and provides opportunities for those students seeking to sharpen their technical ability and artistry to prepare for entry into a four-year program or a career in dance. The company also offers opportunities for those students who are talented, love to dance, yet wish to pursue other careers.


In the Midst

VIP Productions 

In the Midst was formed by Directory Rochelle Underdue. It originated from her experience in the midst of the creativity in New York. The platform was built to promote not only her own creativity but the influence of the other arts, including spoken word, dance, paint, theater and more. The goal is to unite the community through the creative arts. In the Midst would like to dedicate this performance to the recently lost professor, choreographer, and mentor Kavin Grant, captain of his community group, ARN (A Rhythm Nation).

Sahara Silk is located in North East Florida. Troupe members are a dedicated and accomplished dancers taught by director and choreographer Julianne Battaglia. All have had years of training and experience in Middle Eastern dance. When a dancer "becomes" the music and her kinetic expression makes the music visible to the viewer, she can be said to have the "it" factor; i.e., when a dancer can embody, express, and demonstrate the intricate nuances and complexities of Middle Eastern rhythms and music.
