JCE strives to give dance artists and students the chance to learn about the many styles of jazz dance by holding workshops and master classes. Since February 2008 we’ve held workshops in various jazz styles, partnering, and ballet for jazz dancers. We’ve also sponsored master classes in Matt Mattox Freestyle Jazz Dance taught by Jazz Project choreographer Bob Boross, who studied with Matt Mattox; Jack Cole technique taught by Ed Kresley, a former archivist for the American Dance Machine; and Betsy Haug style taught by dance artist Gail Pearson, who was Betsy Haug’s assistant.

In April 2021 we began the JCE Pop-Up Classes, a monthly series of virtual classes in various jazz styles such as theater jazz, Simonson Technique, and Latin Fusion.
