"I'M NOT A DANCER, BUT HERE WAS MOVEMENT I FELT COULD LIVE INSIDE ME. IT WAS AS INVITATIONAL AS IT WAS PRESENTATIONAL."HMS COFOUNDER AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER SCOTT SILBERSTEIN
JUMP RHYTHM: IN CONCERT!
Jump Rhythmâs full ensemble of dancer/singer/actors showcases recent works and pieces from their award-winning repertory in a variety of settings from traditional theaters and black box spaces to convention centers and music festivals.
JUMP RHYTHM QUARTET OR JUMP RHYTHM QUINTET
Featuring either four or five dancers, this smaller chamber ensemble is perfect for intimate theaters, informal performance areas, and other non-traditional performance spaces. While providing the same rhythmic and emotional punch as the Jump Rhythm Jazz Project: In Concert! experience, this is the perfect option for a smaller season budget.
JUMP RHYTHM JAZZ PROJECT AS YOUR GUEST
Offering solos, duets or group works from our repertory, Jump Rhythm is a complimentary addition to your variety show or shared concert program at theaters, universities, music and dance festivals, elementary and secondary schools, libraries, businesses, conferences and conventions.
JUMP RHYTHM JAZZ PROJECT: THE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE!
A Jump Rhythm lecture demonstration combines rhythmic demonstrations and company repertory into a 40 minute â 1 hour exploration of rhythm, music, movement, humor and interactive conversation best suited for all ages. Jump Rhythm lecture demonstrations work well as family performances or when specifically tailored to students ranging in age from kindergarten through high school. The performances can be presented in a variety of settings including theaters, schools, libraries, hospitals, professional conferences and more.
Our residencies can be conducted by the entire company, a team of two-to-four members, or by the artistic director, the associate artistic director, or a senior company member. We can work with your students at your dance studio, secondary school, university, or community center for anywhere from two days to six months or longer.
During that time, company members can teach classes in Jump RhythmÂ® Technique; Jump RhythmÂ® Tap; Choreographing Music: Rhythmic Approaches to Improvisation and Composition; Standing Down StraightÂ®: The Injury-Preventive Path to Performance and Everyday Behavior; American Rhythm Dancing and The African American Performance Aesthetic; and/or Swing Dancing and the Joys of Hand-Held Partner Dancing.
In Choreographic Residencies, two company members can set an existing piece of choreography from company repertory, or the artistic director can create new commissions, featuring JRJP’s rhythmically and dramatically innovative style of jazz-rhythm-based theatre dance. And, to round out your experience, we can close the residency with a full-company performance of Jump Rhythm Jazz Project in Concert.
