We are so proud to say that our Artistic Director Jacob Montoya and his Hawkins Contemporary Jazz Company Elite dancers are headed to the 18th Annual Choreography Festival in Palm Desert! Only 14 pieces were selected in Division II, representing solos, duets, small groups and ensembles.  Division II is for choreographers working with pre-professional dancers from aspiring and emerging companies, colleges and studios. This is a huge honor and such an amazing opportunity for them all.

Still haven't seen "Juliet"? Watch their performance at Showcase in June, as captured by XSiGHT Media. This piece won the highest awards at every competition it entered last year, including special choreography awards, a "Stop the Clock" Award, Judges Choice awards and even a perfect score!  It has left audiences and judging panels alike on their feet and in tears.
