First full-length show in the works!


T1016171a

You might have noticed that we haven’t been performing as frequently as usual lately, and it’s for a good reason! We are building our first original, full-length show, Alice in Jazzland! Performances coming in November and we’ll provide more details as we get closer! We had a great photo shoot with SJ Alum Morgan Petroski Hjelm to get some publicity photos at the beautiful Albuquerque Botanic Gardens. Here’s our favorite shot of “The Mad Hatters Tea Party”

Catch-up: Zero to 60 wrap-up and SJ 5 year anniversary!

Our performers chose a range of causes, from personal connections, to local, regional, and international causes. Please check out these great organizations and get involved or donate!

What is Zero to 60?


zero_2_60

A fundraiser! Motivation to improve your dancing! Fun performances to watch! Dancing on a team or working on choreography are some of the best ways to improve your dancing. But it is challenging to come up with a whole song of choreography, hard to get everyone to rehearse, and intimidating to perform! We get it. ZERO to 60 is here to help you get over the jitters. Step 1: Create a routine up to 60 seconds (max!). Solo jazz, lindy […]

Busy Sweet Jubilee Bees!


IMG_5734

ALL I DO, ALL I DO, ALL I DO, ALL I DO… Whew we’ve been busy! We’ve had two gigs in the past two days. For the first of those, we performed All I Do seven times within approximately two hours! Albuquerque has been oddly warm for January for most the month, but wouldn’t you know the first morning of our performance days, it snowed, and snowed! Now for Albuquerque that means a nice dusting, which is just fine with us. […]

New Years Eve and A LOT of Balloons!


DSCF1844a

We had an absolute blast performing at the Palace Restaurant & Saloon for New Years Eve! We even debuted a new routine that we just adore. Our grand finale and new routine was a balloon burlesque number. Eva chose the song Singing in the Rain for this number and we were dressed as rain clouds. (Balloons = Clouds, get it?) With only a few weeks to learn and polish this number, the three of us (that were in town) worked […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.28 – 1940s Dancers


1940s dancers

1940s Dancers After a few weeks of end-of-summer hiatus we’re back to dancing this week! We can’t wait! This photo of a group of dancers from the 1940s seemed appropriate for today’s Throwback Thursday. There are some names on the back but I have to admit I can’t decipher the handwriting. We’re happy to be back and working on new routines! Wish us luck as we get back into dancer shape and work on some high kicks and fast dance […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.27 – 1945 Cowgirls


1945 cowgirls

1945 Cowgirls Six lovely ladies in their western wear sit perched on a fence in today’s Throwback Thursday photograph. Their plaid shirts, hats, and high waisted jeans make these ladies look like they mean business on the ranch. One lady is wearing saddle shoes though, which makes me wonder if this was just a weekend trip to a ranch for this group of friends or if that one lady was just out of place. Overall this photograph just makes me […]

Set in Los Alamos, N.M., at the Manhattan Project during the race to build the world’s first […]
