Happy 2020 - News and Upcoming Events

Dear Friends,
It's been some time since we wrote to you... we've had a wonderful 2020 so far... We have spent some time revisiting our latest work 'The Four Horsemen', and reimagining some of the elements that make up this innovative production. We have some exciting news to share with you and some great upcoming events that we will be slowly announcing in the next few months.

We are beyond thrilled that Jiva has once again received a two-year grant from Dance/NYC as part of their Dance Advancement Fund. This award will allow us to build our public programming, and expand our resource bases. Please also see information on our upcoming Master workshop with the celebrated dancer- Indira Kadambi in April.
