Decidedly Jazz Danceworks


Recognizing themselves as guests in a form born out of Black American culture and the African American experience, Decidedly Jazz Danceworks (DJD) is a 38-year-old jazz company from Calgary, Canada, dedicated to the rich traditions and boundless future of jazz dance. DJD was a crowd-pleasing favorite during their Pillow debut at Festival 2023, with a style that has been described as “music for the eyes.” This performance features the piece “Family of Jazz”, choreographed by Kimberly Cooper, accompanied by the six-piece Rubim de Toledo Ensemble with vocalist Karimah. Decidedly Jazz Danceworks was filmed live during Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival 2023. Video by Nel Shelby Productions.
