Advocating for creative communities and dance entrepreneurs since 2011.
JAM is the home of dance entrepreneur Jessica Marino, providing artist management services and industry shopping. Networking for dance and bringing ideas to the spotlight.
I am inspired to make art through dance. As a performer, I have a burning drive to move (literally), and to move others – ignite feeling. Art, specifically dance, makes me feel in touch with the grand theatre of human nature in even the most delicate ways. Together, let’s evolve beyond stereotypes of 'the starving artist' through business savvy and creativity. It is my goal as an arts ambassador to contribute to educating and preparing the next generation of dancers for the challenges ahead. Let us grow smart movers who can balance passion with strategy. The chaos of life excites me, and I can only hope it will layer my craft with complexity and depth.
May we connect, share, build, and inspire – happy dancing.
- Jessica Anne Marino | JAM

dance entrepreneur FUNDING think tank
Founded by Kathleen Nasti, this group strives to incite a vibrant discussion about new possibilities for dance funding. This blog attempts to serve as a means to disseminate information about dance entrepreneurship with the goals to: 1) contribute to a more informed and educated population of dance artists, 2) challenge us to open our minds to new funding possibilities that consider the changing global landscape in arts, finance, and beyond, 3) provide potential and possibility for the creation of a larger funding pie so we feel secure and open for collaboration and sharing in the global dance market. We look forward to hosting passionate, innovative, ‘moving and shakin,’ and (of course) respectful conversations about keeping concert dance alive through sustainable and reliable funding.
Performer for hire, workshops (musical theater & theater jazz, modern, contemporary, ballet), speaking engagements (arts entrepreneurship, arts management, career paths for dancers), theatrical choreography.
