Jazz Choreography Enterprises is proud to announce that it has received a $1000 grant from the MCC Community Benefit Festival Grant Program and the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce. The funds will be used to help present JCE’s performance on February 9, 2014 at the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House.
The Lenox Hill Neighborhood House was founded in 1894 to provide free kindergarten education to immigrant children. It now supports residents of the Upper East Side and Roosevelt Island with legal, educational, and social services. The organization has a staff of around 150 regular employees and utilizes over 700 volunteers every year to support the more than 20,000 individuals and family members who rely on its services.
JCE will be putting on a performance of The New York Jazz Choreography Project as part of the organization’s Second Sunday series. This series primarily caters to the Neighborhood House’s senior population from their senior centers, though any who wish to attend are welcome.
Marian Hyun, Co-Artistic Director and Founder of JCE, said that JCE is honored to receive acknowledgment from the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce. “We are thankful for their support, and we will put the funds to good use—they’ll go toward choreographer stipends,” she went on to say.
The New York Jazz Choreography Project performance will take place on Sunday, February 9th, at 2 p.m. at the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, 331 E. 70th Street, New York, New York. There is a $5 admission fee, and children 12 and under will be admitted for free.
