Dance at the J Virtual Series invites you to experience The Power of Dance

Dance at the J Celebrating 41 Years of presenting Concerts, Master Classes and Workshops. 

Dance at the J Virtual Series invites you to experience The Power of Dance with four different remarkable companies, each with their own unique style.   Gain insight into the life of the artistic director concerning their vision, process and how they continued to create during the pandemic. View pieces from their repertory followed by a Q & A all from the best seat in the house-Your House. We hope you will enjoy this year’s virtual offering and we look forward to a time when we can all be together in the theatre again.
