The “40’s” is a fast moving dance piece featuring music from the sound track of “New York, New York.” Thirteen performers in costumes complete with top hats and canes dance in this jazz celebration. “The 40’s” is reflective of Conte’s style that combines the strength, technique, and grace of ballet, with the explosive energy and style of jazz, and the neet, rhythmic footwork of tap.
