ABOUT US

JAZZ AT THE BALLROOM is committed to keeping swinging, classic jazz thriving, sharing this extraordinary American art form with the greater public and providing audiences with one-of-a-kind experiences.

We work with the world's most talented jazz musicians in intimate and unique settings and focus on the Great American Songbook and the timeless elegance the music embraces. Our mission is to create an environment where every guest feels at home and each artist can share their stories, passion, and talent.

Beyond our ballroom concerts, we work to introduce, teach, and explore this incredible art form through our workshops, special events, and public concerts. Through these efforts, we keep unforgettable jazz standards alive in our community and foster a love of music in future generations.

 

THE LATEST SCOOP

To Our Audience Members,

In light of the ever-changing public health situation with regard to the COVID-19 virus, JATB will be canceling the remainder of the shows for Season Four. While our goal remains to keep classic jazz available to everyone, we recognize the immediate priority is to keep our audience and artists safe and healthy.

When it is prudent to do so, we will be rescheduling concerts. Please join our mailing list so you stay up-to-date on the calendar as it evolves. We are also exploring creative ways to bring the music to you remotely and in your homes (which is perhaps a much-needed distraction?)

As always, thank you for your support and we hope to see all of you soon!

SEASON 5

2020-2021

Due to all the variables and uncertainty with the coronavirus, we have made some changes for Season 5, which is scheduled to begin in Fall 2020. Rather than offering season memberships, we will be selling tickets on a show-by-show basis. Previous season members will be given priority for ticket sales.
