Decidedly Jazz Dancworks: Canvas

By Julye Huggins
Canvas - Rehearsal Shorts

Last week, Calgary’s Decidedly Jazz Danceworks (DJD) performed its bi-annual dancer-choreographed show at Theatre Junction Grand under the direction of Artistic Assistant Sarisa F. de Toledo. In this video Artistic Director Vicki Adams Willis introduces rehearsal footage of the show, Canvas, which she calls a “delicious buffet of tasty jazz treats”. Featuring fifteen short works by dancers Mark Hall, Catherine Hayward, Shayne Johnson, Dinou Marlett-Stuart, Ivan Nunez-Segui, Danielle Wensley and Deanne Walsh, Canvas “spans a wide range of jazz styles from swing, lindy hop and jazz to more contemporary jazz forms.” Be sure to catch DJD again this spring when they perform Wilds at Theatre Junction Grand.
