Jazz Choreography Enterprises, Inc.

Jazz Choreography Enterprises, Inc. presents New York Jazz Choreography Project for its semiannual dance concert devoted exclusively to jazz.  JCE features works from emerging to established choreographers, and this year, the performance will feature works from seasoned jazz veterans Sue Samuels and Crystal Chapman.  Newcomers include Tyrell V. Rolle, who was featured on "SYTYCD" in 2010, and Matt Pardo, a dancer from the Lucinda Childs Dance Company.

Since 2007, Artistic Directors Marian Hyun and Merete Muenter have presented more than 40 choreographers and 100 dancers from the US, Japan, South Africa, and Germany.  The performances will be presented at The Ailey Studios at The Joan Weill Center for Dance.  The studio is located at 405 West 55th Street at 9th Avenue.  

JAZZ CHOREOGRAPHY ENTERPRISES, INC. (JCE) is a nonprofit corporation formed in 2007 whose mission is to encourage the creation of jazz dance in concert form.  Its goal is to present choreography in a variety of jazz styles, created and performed by people of various ages and levels of experience. To that end, they produce The New York Jazz Choreography Project twice a year. These shows give choreographers the opportunity to develop their technical skills and creativity before live audiences.
