Dear Arizona Jazz Dance Showcase Community,

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the trajectory of COVID-19 in the coming months, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Arizona Jazz Dance Showcase 2020.

We are closely following trends in case numbers and health guidelines. The Arizona Jazz Dance Showcase may be rescheduled for Spring 2021. We will continue to send updates as we know more about AJDS future dates.

With deep appreciation & gratitude for all of our AJDS participants, we look forward to our next event.

Comment on Facebook Dear Arizona Jazz ...

Smart call, but sad.

How about audition dates (for fall 2021 admission)? That audition dates usually coincides with the Jazz Showcase, right?

Thx for info, look forward to Spring 2021. Will there be any fall 2020 performances?

>>> Faculty Highlight <<< Join us in wishing a happy retirement to Associate Professor AMY ERNST!
Ms. Ernst’s career began as a featured dancer, touring internationally with the Lewitzky dance company for over a decade. After her work with the company, Amy was hired by the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Inglewood, California as a physical therapist for three and a half years. In 1995, after receiving her MFA in dance from the University of Washington-Seattle and teaching at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Ms. Ernst joined the UA School of Dance faculty. Amy has shared her insight and wisdom of dance with generations of young artists, teaching all levels of Modern Dance Technique and Choreography, Dance Injury Prevention, Dance Kinesiology, and Biomechanics for Dance.
During her time at the University of Arizona, Amy was a teacher, a choreographer, a mentor, a friend, and most importantly, family.
Congratulations Amy! We can’t thank you enough! 💗
