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.
