Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company premiered its hit show Encore in New York City at Manhattan's Joyce SoHo in June, 2007. Rose Room, choreographed by Daniel Gwirtzman to music of Art Hickman (played by Benny Goodman Sextet featuring Goodman & Charlie Christian), is one of many beloved dances from the acclaimed evening-length work. This brief dance features the original cast, dancers Daniel Gwirtzman and Jamie Scott. Encore was an official selection of the New York Musical Theater Festival in 2009. Since then it has remained in active repertory within the Company and has been licensed by other professional companies, pre-professional training programs, university and college dance departments, and arts high schools. In 2017, Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company celebrates the tenth anniversary with The Encore Project, a year-long tour of performances and interactive programs.
