2017 was a busy year!

Construction started in late 2016 and JNS was ready to move into its new home in January 2017. With the new facility, JNS has increased its visibility, expanded class offerings, added a rehearsal room rental program, and welcomed many new students to our wonderful jazz community!

Our Capital Campaign Committee, Fundraising Committee, and many volunteers worked tirelessly throughout the year to grow our fundraising and outreach programs. This amazing team also pulled off an unbelievable feat and hosting not one, but TWO, swing dance fundraising events that raised over $40,000 for our capital campaign. 

Moving into 2018, we will merge this capital campaign website with our Jazz Night School website. For continued updates on our capital campaign and construction progress, please bookmark jazznightschool.org.

We could not have successfully accomplished our fundraising tasks without our volunteers. Thank you for your dedication and commitment to Jazz Night School!

Thanks to generous donors like you, we have raised over $190,000 (75% of our $250K goal) for our capital campaign.
