JazzAntiqua Dance and Music Ensemble
Stories In Jazz
Ebony Repertory Theatre’s Dance@theHolden is proud to present JazzAntiqua Dance and Music Ensemble as part of our 2019-20 dance season. The unfortunate circumstances we are facing due to COVID-19, have afforded us the opportunity to bring this concert to you via YOUTUBE. This allows Ebony Repertory Theatre to extend this presentation beyond one evening of dance and beyond the boundaries of the physical structure! Enjoy the dance!
JazzAntiqua Dance and Music Ensemble, under the artistic direction of Pat Taylor, is a beacon of inspiration and excellence in the California dance scene, specifically in Los Angeles. Ms Taylor has curated this evening of dance specifically for Dance@theHolden.
