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. Their 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. We feature works from emerging choreographers like Ellenore Scott, who is making waves at a young age after being a finalist on So You Think You Can Dance?, and established veterans of the jazz world like Sue Samuels, who has been teaching, dancing, and choreographing for years.

Tickets: $25 Tel: 212-545-7536 or wminyc.org
After-party with DJ Greg Caz, spinning samba, forro & Brazilian classics following show!

Folklore meets funk in this dynamic concert led by the colorful and charismatic percussionist Dendê! Hailing from Bahia, Brazil, Dendê began his career in Carlinhos Brown’s world-famous band, Timbalada, and has played with such greats as Giovanni Hidalgo, David Byrne and Vinicius Cantuaria. His band, combining hot Afro-Brazilian pop music with rhythms of the African diaspora, can summon the frenetic energy of carnival or the laid-back cool of reggae. The title track of Dendê’s new CD Bahia de Todos Os Santos is quickly becoming an anthem of Brazilophiles everywhere.
