The culmination of jazz music and tap dance is a tradition that has been passed down through
the music. Through American songbook favorites and standards composed and established
within the Bebop era, this is our expression of gratitude to those dedicated to preserve this
dance and this music, as well as to those committed to progress these forms.
Ayan Imai-Hall is a tap dancer from New Hampshire. In 2012 Ayan was awarded an NHSCA

the dance to the music throughout the New England Seacoast.
