2021 SEASON UPDATE
We’re sad we had to cancel our performances in 2020 owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. Until we’re able to present live events safely, you can see the work of our talented artists here on JCE Replays, featuring videos from past performances of the JCE Jazz Dance Project. We hope you’ll check back for updates and stay in touch on social media. And mark your calendars for our virtual presentation of the JCE Jazz Dance Project on April 24th and 25th, 2021!
Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re not able to present live performances, so we thought we’d do the next best thing. We’ll show pieces from past productions so you can revisit some wonderful work by our talented artists. Every two weeks we’ll present a different video so you can see the variety and richness of jazz dance. We hope you stay safe and look forward to the day when we can present live performances to you again.
“Creciente” was choreographed by Cory “Nova” Villegas and performed in the JCE Jazz Dance Project in October 2019. From “The Power and Versatility of Jazz Dance,” a review by Dominique Robinson: “’Creciente,’ by Cory ‘Nova’ Villegas, featured the essence of Latin folk and passion from the soul, as the combinations merged with the suave Latin sounds, flowing arms and fast footwork. As the name of the song implies, ‘Espíritu’ was felt from and through the undulating movements birthed straight from the core.”

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.
