Patti Rutland Jazz is presenting the IMPACT Project! The IMPACT Project is in its inaugural year and is designed to provide an opportunity for performing artists to create, perform and promote their original artistic works in a safe and creative environment. It is our hope that the IMPACT Project will invite its audiences to broaden their perspectives as to what art can be and allow our performers to impact the lives of its audiences in a profound way through dance, theatre, music, poetry, movement and storytelling.


We invite all performance groups or individuals from all over the tri-state area to join us in our first year. COVID-19 has created a barrier to live performance and it is our hope that we can be the catalyst our area needs to move into the future of safe, creative and innovative live performances.  All artists who wish to participate must apply on our website, to be considered for the project. The process is simple and completely free. The application will provide the PRJ Board of Directors an understanding of the nature of the work each artist wishes to perform. A video submission is recommended to understand the caliber of each artist or company’s works.  The applications are considered by the meaning and description of the work as well as the concept that is being presented. Professional, collegiate, freelance artists and student groups are all invited to submit. 


Patti Rutland Jazz is a 501c-3 non-profit professional dance company whose mission is to transform the lives of it’s students and audiences through high-quality dance education, performance, and community engagement. With this event, it is truly the community connection we seek to build through our inspiring performances.  Each year, PRJ will choose a local 501c-3 non profit to donate 10% of the proceeds of the IMPACT Project. The remainder of the proceeds will go towards the Patti Rutland Jazz 501c-3 non-profit organization. 


In order to keep PRJ’s commitment to education at the forefront, master workshop classes in dance and theatre arts will be offered Saturday, August 7th at the Patti Rutland Jazz Dance Center.  These workshops are $15.00 per class to all participants of the IMPACT project and are $30.00 per class for any non-participating artists. A detailed class listing will be made available in July.
