Jazz Baptiste Productions
Working with JBP is an amazing experience. I'm fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such a creative person. Jennifer Barnes
My experience with Jazz Baptiste has been memorable. She is a true professional. I worked on her SambaRet production as House Manager. She maintained her integrity
and stayed true to the objectives of her production. She adhered to the time constraints
of the venue and stayed prepared for opportunities to present her talent and vision. As a student, I watched her diligently hone her craft and select music and dancers to
represent the artistry she choreographed. Francesca Lowe
Jazz Baptiste brought an elegant ease to all the events we created together in the dance troupe Gypsy Duende. Dancing and co-creating with Jazz is always pleasurable. Leilainia, Co-Founder of The Shimmy Sisters and Nomad Artz Entertainment
I LOVE SambaRet! That was a super sexy, great, great show! JB
"I have had the pleasure of working with Jazz as a dancer in several shows. Her passion and
dedication to her art are evident in every detail. She always maintains a cheerful attitude of
professionalism, making sure I am clear about all the details including venue, payment, call
time, and costuming so I am fully prepared, and delivers high class entertainment to all her
clients. I definitely recommend Jazz Baptiste Productions to anyone seeking fun and
exciting entertainment." Laura Dasi

Some of the most talented Latin jazz musicians and dancers in the country
come together to perform to the music of Astor Piazzolla and Baden Powell
led by the multi-talented Eric Larkins, classical guitarist, and Jazz Baptiste,
world renowned dance producer, choreographer and performer, in this
enchanting production of vibrant Latin rhythms and classical artistry. This
beautiful love story weaves a harmonious union of music and dance through
the intense passion of tango, the gentle grace of ballet, the sexy sensuality of
samba and the rhythmic rumba of Spain. Experience true love, with La Musica
de La Danza.
La Musica de La Danza
SambaRet (Sam-ba-ray, like Cab-a-ray), is a beautiful and exhilarating
spectacular of sensational samba of Brazil, blended with the classy, old-
Hollywood glamour of cabaret dance. Arouse your senses in this tantalizing
thrill ride of theatrical splendor! This amazing adventure begins in a sultry jazz
club in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and takes the viewers on an exotic journey
revealing the best of Brazil Samba, the beach, tropical beauties, the Amazon,
and more! It is very hot! Are you ready for the HEAT?
Hot! Hot! Hot! Sizzling Latin dancers set the house on fire with their fast
spins, fancy foot work, and awe-inspiring tricks! If you have the Latin fever,
then get ready for more heat. A fusion of salsa, tango, rumba and cha-cha-
cha create an electrifying review of passion, fuego, and calor! Muy Caliente!
Flamenco embodies the strength of Spain combined with the heart of the
Gypsy culture of Arabic, Indian, African and Oriental influences that shaped
this intense dance form. The spirit of flamenco comes alive as the dancers
feet beat rapidly against the floor creating an electrifying sound and dance
experience, accompanied by castanets and strong rhythmic guitar vibrations.
Get swept up in the fiery heat of Fuego Flamenco!
