MJDC (1975-1988) was Minnesota's first repertory jazz dance company; founded by Zoe Sealy. During its 13 year run, five male choreographers created original works on the dancers. By 1991, four were dead of AIDS. Former company member, Karla Grotting and the Eclectic Edge Ensemble are reconstructing select works by these remarkable artists; William Harren, Jeffrey Mildenstein, Clarence Teeters and David Voss to honor and remember their contributions to the American concert jazz dance form. The program also features a solo performed by jazz great, Danny Buraczeski and the latest work by jazz legend, Zoe Sealy.
