New England Presenter's Showcase

New England Presenter's Showcase

The Dance Complex presents an afternoon of Boston choreographers, for presenters from throughout New England.

Jenny Herzog is a jazz singer and tap dancer. She received her Masters of Music from New England Conservatory’s Contemporary Improvisation Department. The history of tap dance is inextricably linked to the jazz era. Jenny’s work pays homage to the roots of the art form; in the age of tricks and speed, her priority is the music. Whether accompanying the band or taking a solo, the feet are an instrument all their own. Jenny plays with the relationship between voice and feet: trading improvisational solos between vocal scatting and tapping, singing and tapping in unison, and trading with the band. Through historical choreography and storytelling, Jenny strives to pay homage to historical figures who dedicated their lives to tap dance—and helped to shape the American art form that brings us so much joy. Alongside her band, Jenny presents programs of jazz standards, original compositions, historical choreography, and plenty of vocal and tap improvisation. She was Artist-in-Residence at Surel's Place in Boise, ID, and Teaching Artist with the University of Michigan Musical Society. Her work has been presented at Jordan Hall, The Dance Complex, Boston Center for the Arts, Dixon Place NYC, Symphony Space, Maureen’s Jazz Cellar, the Gardner Museum, Club Passim, Wally’s, and the Museum of Innovation and Industry, among others.
