J CHEN PROJECT 10 Years of Dance!

$3,555 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 21 people in 8 months

In 2008, Jessica Chen created J CHEN PROJECT.  A modern dance company founded in New York City exploring how we perceive and create identities within the collective human experience through innovative and culturally-based dance works.  

Since then, the company has given scholarships to over 20 pre-professional dancers to participate in our Mentorship Program and partnered with a New York City theater to produce an annual Choreographers’ Festival that has presented nearly 60 emerging to mid-career choreographers.  The company has also received commissions to teach and perform at 28 universities and performing arts venues across the U.S.  All of this was made possible by the people who believed in us.

Thank You for 10 Years of Support! We couldn't have gotten here without you. We look forward to continuing to inspire, create, dance, educate, and collaborate.

Please help us have the best year yet as we push to raise $10K to celebrate our 10 Years!

$10 – Gives us 1 Hour of Rehearsal Space
$100 – Turns 1 Costume Concept into Reality
$500 – Supports 1 Aspiring Dancer with a Scholarship to our Mentee Program
$1,000 – Covers 1/2 of our Theater Deposit


* These funds will help us produce our NYC Season this Fall 2018.  The money we raise will go towards expenses listed above as well as paying Dancers, Composers, Light Designer, Costume Designer, Stage Manager, Photographer, Videographer, Theater Costs and Administrative Costs.

When you donate to J CHEN PROJECT, you are donating to so much more than a dance company.  You are donating to dreamers, leaders, and most of all, a community.  With your support, we will continue to inspire and educate young dancers through our Mentorship Program, and develop new projects such as Dancing Keys , that gives piano students ages 7 to 13 a unique chance to collaborate with professional dancers in a new work and new score.
