Alyce Jenkins teaches the classic jazz technique of “Luigi,” often referred to as the father of modern jazz dance. In addition to studying and teaching with Luigi for over 40 years, her early dance training included ballet at the Joffrey school in NYC, tap with legendary Broadway teacher, Bob Audy, theatre dance with Lee Theodore, and modern at the Ailey School. Her performance and choreographic experience includes regional dinner theatre and the Jazz Dance Theatre. She was cast in the original production of Sondheim’s “Pacific Overtures” in 1976 and the final national tour of Yul Brynner’s, “The King and I” in 1981 (but did not accept the offers). She also taught ballet, jazz, and tap at the highly regarded professional performing arts summer camp, Belvoir Terrace in Massachusetts.
