Since its founding in 1992, Savage Jazz Dance Company has created a singular technique, quality, and philosophy that define the Company’s movement style. Driven by the vision of Artistic Director and Founder, Mr. Reginald Ray-Savage, and realized by the commitment of the company’s exceptional dancers, SJDC’s movement is defined by three primary beliefs: the importance of disciplined, technical dance training, rooted in classical ballet and modern techniques; the willingness to give into the rich artistic expression of music, in all forms; and, last but not least, ENERGY. “Once in a great while a rare person comes on the scene – for whatever reason – who seems to reincarnate the lessons from his teachers and forebears. It is this quality in Reginald Ray-Savage that gives the depth of heritage and authenticity to his company” –K.C. Patrick, Dance Magazine.
