Jasper Performing Arts Center (J-PAC) desired objective is to enrich artistic awareness within the community and implement social change on and off the dance floor. Launching optimum performances to various organizations not only promote the importance of charitable work within the community but it also gives the students an opportunity to see life beyond their inner circle.
Sharon Jones and Sharisse Brown are the Directors and Founders of JASPER Performing Arts Center where they collectively bring over forty-five years of dance experience to this foundation.Read More
The JASPER Performing Arts Ensemble (J-PACE) has been in operation for several years. Upon the inception of JASPER, there were only six members in the company but as the years progressed, one to two members were selected annually to bring our count to 15 traveling company members. Within this period of time, we’ve expanded our traveling company from one group to two which now includes a junior and senior division.
The Directors are in constant search for the next Ensemble member and have therefore created an Apprentice group. This group has been developed in hopes of expanding our Ensemble as well as replacing those who have moved on with other life ambitions.Read More
