Jazz Dance Collective: Launch Event

The Jazz Dance Collective is an educational hub for Tap Dance, Authentic Jazz, and UK Jazz. The Collective brings together the knowledge of Jazz, encompassing both its history and practice. These three disciplines of Jazz dance link its foundation and evolution, providing a coherent line to educate the future generation. Members of the Collective join together in projects, sharing space and discussion.

The Launch Event introduces co-founding members: Jreena Green, Annette Walker, Jerry IDJ, Ellen Miller, Juliet Vibert and Masumi Endo

Who are the JDC?
We’re a group of independent practitioners with a shared vision to reconnect the history and practice of these three Jazz dance styles as a foundation for the next generation to build from. These styles developed from access to social spaces in black communities that have since changed (clubs/ballrooms) so our aim is to provide a new social environment for all who are interested to explore.
