The Emmy Award Winning
Dance Company from Chicago

Jump Rhythm Jazz Project

JRJP is an Emmy award-winning company of emotion-
charged, rhythmically explosive dancer-singer-actors
based in Chicago that celebrates the timeless core of
all jazz performance -- dancing and singing in high-energy
bursts of swinging body rhythms to the beat-driven sounds
of syncopated music. Since its founding in New York City by
Billy Siegenfeld in 1990, the company has thrilled audiences
and students nationally and internationally with its rich
blend of percussive musicality and story-driven dance

Emmy Award winner, Billy Siegenfeld, is the founder,artistic director, principal choreographer, and ensemble performing member of Jump Rhythm Jazz Project. He received a 2006-2007 Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Achievement for Individual Excellence On Camera/Performer for his work in the multiple-Emmy-Award-winning documentary Jump Rhythm Jazz Project: Getting There, produced by HMS Media for public television. He is the 2006 recipient of Chicago's most prestigious dance honor, the Ruth Page Award, which cited him for "his vibrant dance artistry, development of a unique dance vocabulary, and the exciting choreography created in that dance technique." Referring to this approach, the magazine Dancer credited Siegenfeld with "inventing the first genuine jazz technique in forty years," and the magazine Dance Teacher placed him on its Twentieth Century Timeline of Choreographers and Innovators for "developing the Jump Rhythm Technique and founding Jump Rhythm Jazz Project."
