2020 SEASON UPDATE
OPEN LEVEL CLASS
Sunday, August 16th, 12:00-1:15 (EDT)
“Hypno” was choreographed and performed by Sharlane Conner and Bryan Ernesto Menjivar in the April 2017 production of the New York Jazz Choreography Project (now known as the JCE Jazz Dance Project).
From a review of the performance by Dominique Robinson: “Meanwhile, Sharlane Conner and Bryan Menjivar paint flirtatiousness in a different light with a Lindy Hop adaptation in Hypno. The great hypnotist grabs the lovely dancer from the audience in order to take over her mind and manipulate her to twist, flip and spin her body. As he snaps her in and out of trance, just when he thinks he has won over both her and the crowd, she cleverly picks up on his deviousness and snaps him into a hypnotic state, comically showing the audience who’s boss, as he follows her off the stage like a trained puppy.”

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.
Each piece of the evening was a joy…All of what the NYJCP coordinated that evening was an evolution of jazz.
If you saw this concert, you would be reassured that jazz dance is alive and kicking…
…all the performers in the program showed a passion and love for the language of jazz dance, and that message was received loud and clear.
