Alison Durkee writes about the recent April 2019 jazz project:

““Though jazz dance is all too rarely shown on the concert dance stage, JCE’s programming goes beyond jazz hands to show off just how much the art form has to offer.”

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.
