Jubilee American Dance Theatre is a unique performance ensemble, bringing to life the dances, music, songs, and stories of the folks who made America. From Appalachia to Swing Era dance halls to Cajun Country, America's immigrants and more, Jubilee transports you to another time and place, through its rich weaving of stories, songs, dance, and music. Jubilee's work is all set in context with period costumes and props. The costume staff goes to great lengths to research and reproduce authentic costumes of each era. Likewise, the choral and music directors recreate regional and historical musical styles.  See Repertoire, About Us, and Photos + Videos.
