Founded in 2010, Project Moshen, a contemporary, female Jazz dance company, set out to revive the style of Jazz dance in Philadelphia. Project Moshen entertains audience members of all ages & backgrounds with modern day shows that intrigue, excite & captivate the average dance viewer, along with the seasoned dancer. Artistic Director, Kelli Moshen, combines her East Coast and West Coast training to form her own urban, athletic, intricate, & up-tempo movement style that keeps her audience at the edge of their seats. In addition to being active performers, Project Moshen works to revive Jazz Dance in Philadelphia by regularly teaching in the Philadelphia dance community. By teaching dance, our company members are able to continually refine their art, which helps them bring a current and cutting edge style to their audience. Project Moshen can be found teaching dance at local studios & universities such as Villanova University and holding jazz master classes all over the Philadelphia area.
Project Moshen produces three shows a year, including their own Performance series called, Artistry Unfolded, and their annual December charity production, EXCERPTS. The company also performs in festivals such as the annual Come Together Dance Festival produced by Koresh Dance Company, Dumbo Dance Festival, & APAP, at special events such as the Philadelphia Flower Show, and for charitable organizations such as the Morris Animal Refuge. Project Moshen has also started their own summer dance program, CAMPS IN MOSHEN, where they visit overnight camps to train dancers who are away. Through these efforts, along with their enthralling performances, Project Moshen hopes to spread their passion, creativity, strengths & knowledge of jazz dance to the community, along with bringing this style of Jazz to life in Philadelphia.
