Founded in 1993, JAZZANTIQUA DANCE & MUSIC ENSEMBLE celebrates the jazz tradition as a vital thread in the cultural fabric of African American history and heritage, and a defining element of the American experience. Dedicated to EDUCATION / PRESERVATION / CREATION, the Company’s mission is to increase awareness of and appreciation for jazz as an American legacy through collaborative dance and music projects (performances, classes, lecture-demonstrations, symposiums, community outreach efforts) that inspire, as well as entertain.
Exploring original music compositions along with the works of Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, John Coltrane and other greats, JazzAntiqua delves deep into the heart of jazz and the stories within the music. From jazz clubs to concert halls, performing arts centers to schools, museums to festivals in the park — JazzAntiqua shares the art of jazz with audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
JazzAntiqua has been recognized with grant awards from the Doolittle Foundation, Los Angeles County Arts Commission, California Arts Council, Frances E. Williams Artists Grant and Toyota Motor Sales, USA.
