Featured below are highlights from JADCO's past performances.


The Little Matchgirl

The Little Matchgirl was performed live during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The concert was performed outdoors in the twilight of a beautiful, crisp fall evening in November. Dancers and the audience were masked for the entirety of the performance.

This concert was among the most beautiful and moving the company has ever performed. As the Artistic Director for the company, I have made a pledge that each year, we will perform this piece, outdoors, and in dedication to the hundreds of thousands of lives lost to the pandemic.

The Little Matchgirl is not just about homelessness and poverty, but also about hope, love, and a realization that, with eyes wide open, we have the power to change things—to make the world around us a more just and loving one.



Feel the Rain

written & Directed bY January Wolfe


Feel the Rain is an original story written for the stage by JADCO Contemporary Dance Company's Artistic Director, January Wolfe. The show is a period piece set in the 1940's, with authentic period costuming playfully contrasted by video imagery and a contemporary soundtrack.


A poignant, uplifting, and beautiful feel-good show, Feel the Rain will have your students humming and singing along. They'll gain a renewed appreciation for what it means to reach for your dreams, and for the importance of sharing and giving back.
