“Jagged Moves has created a fresh dance experience in the Twin Cities! In the land of 10,000 dances, they are a unique voice. Their vision and execution keep you entranced. The movement and environment are navigated masterfully by the dancers,” (Audience Member, March 2018).

Jagged Moves was founded in 2016 by interdisciplinary artist, choreographer, and director Jennifer Glaws. The mission of Jagged Moves is to create dance experiences that explore athleticism and conceptual depth, that engage, open dialogue, and challenge perspective. Jagged Moves strives to genuinely support dancers, technicians, and designers at all career stages with the advancement of our work. We aim to produce immersive, interactive, performance experiences that push notions of space, time, and human connection. Our research topics are driven by the activating belief of the social and developmental rewards of the arts evident in our pursuits in performance, audience engagement, and arts education.

Jagged Moves has been presented at Harvest Chicago Contemporary Dance Festival (2017, 2019), Peck School of the Arts - University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Rhythmically Speaking (Minneapolis), Kinetic Kitchen (Minneapolis), Patrick’s Cabaret (Minneapolis), Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA) at Northrup King Building, Gallery 332 (Minneapolis), Sans Limites Dance (New York, NY), and RAD Fest - Midwest Regional Alternative Dance Festival, Kalamazoo MI.
