WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

All in all, Jazz is a category of dance with many different attributes, and the New York Jazz Choreography Project ... was successful in representing a wide range of what jazz dance has to offer. The show itself was full of life, and I was thoroughly impressed and entertained by the talent showcased.

Jordan Ryder

Each piece of the evening was a joy…All of what the NYJCP coordinated that evening was an evolution of jazz.
