New York Jazz Choreographer Project

Celebrating International Dance Day with a night out at the New York Jazz Choreographer Project.

Great job Ashley Stafford on your fun playful piece! I couldn’t take my eyes off you all Maya Wassermann, Monica Azpeitia, and Kim Senisi. Also enjoyed the wonderful piece by Sue Samuels and the Jazz Roots Dance Company.

Some new favorite choreographers and dancers…

Absolutely love “Who Is She”: a touching narrative and beautiful movements created by Kavin T. Grant and danced by Cory Nicole Hinton and Ke’Yana Robinson. “Man’s World”: an expressive and emotional solo choreographed by Rachel Leigh Dolan and danced by Hannah Jennens. “windows within our very flesh”: a contemporary take on jazz by Antuan Byers. Bookending the show were two dynamic group pieces, a fierce “Men’s Medley” by Billy Griffin and a sweet “The Cave” by Ali Koinoglou and Koin & Co Dancers.

Missed the show tonight? Catch the second performance tomorrow 4pm at Peridance Capezio Center!
