Music and dance belong together and jazz is no exception! In this collaboration with the Baardar Dance Institute, Oslo Jazz Festival welcomes you to the jazz and dance extravaganza ZigityBop!

We asked the New York-based Carter Williams Dance Theater to put together a dance production together with the Staffan William-Olsson Band. On this occasion, the band has been augmented by the addition of Davis Whitfield on piano. Whitfield is the resident musical director at the Cartier Williams Dance Theater.

The dance company consists of some of New York’s best dancers:
Cartier Williams, Yusaku Komori, Luke Hickey, Star Dixon,
and introducing The Deangelo Brothers.
