Last month, Jacob Gutierrez-Montoya and the Hawkins Contemporary Jazz Company traveled to Palm Desert to participate in the The Choreography Festival. Out of 136 entries, 13 finalists were chosen and Glory came home with the Grand Prize.  Enjoy their award winning performance with a video by Drew Roublick. This piece is a true reflection of the training, artistry and values we have at the Hawkins School of Performing Arts.
