A Young Audience Production created specifically for kindergarten to Grade 6 students.

Things are looking pretty flat when the world’s dancers lose all their jazz.  Now, it’s up to the coolest Sleuth to search for clues and find the missing jazz. With help from the mysterious and zany guide “The Vibe,” and a few tricks from the dancers, he searches high and low, now and then, here and there and everywhere, around the world and back again…and discovers that jazz dance is a lot closer than we think!

The show follows the vast history of jazz dance, but also deals with some of these broad themes; problem solving, perseverance, creative thinking, and physical expression, that can tie to your curriculum. The Great Jazz History Mystery also introduces children to the magic of live performance by professional artists.
