An evening of solos and duets, this was the second show of this group, who presented their first concert at Green Street Studios, in 2003.

In May, 2000, Jill organized a collaborative dance concert with Sarah Adams, Pele Bauch, and Elizabeth Solomon, who each choreographed and performed their works at University Settlement in Brooklyn , NY . In this concert Jill also danced the work of Clay Taliaferro, former member of the Jose Limon Company.


Independent Dancemakers

In February, 1996, Jill organized a group of six dance artists in Durham , North Carolina , joining with Mindi Cervi, Annie Griffiths, Amy Chavasse, Rebecca Hutchins and Betsy Dickie Romer, who all choreographed and performed in the first collaborative concert of this collective. The group has since expanded into a wide variety of professional choreographers still performing in the Durham area.
