Sarah Petronio is known as an improvisational jazz tap artist – over the years, she created many choreographies that have been performed, at different times, by a diverse range of dancers, in a number of shows, on several continents. Taking strong inspiration from her dance partner Jimmy Slyde, the musical genius of Thelonious Monk and Ahmad Jamal’s deep sensitivity, Sarah Petronio’s work experiments with form, space, time, and energy, determining some rhythmic phrases, and changes the musical elements like the pieces of a puzzle – thus creating a harmonious interplay between music and movement.
