"...A text from a friend encouraged choreographer and Ballet Austin Academy faculty member Jennifer Hart to apply for the Festival des Arts de Saint-Sauveur International Choreography Competition, to be held Aug. 1 in Quebec, Canada..."
"...The duet is one segment in choreographer Jennifer Hart's "Variations on Surrender," which will be performed with two other works by Hart as Ignite, the inaugural concert of Performa/Dance. Founded by Hart – who has choreographed work for Ballet Austin II and is on the faculty at Ballet Austin Academy – and Ballet Austin dancer Edward Carr, the pickup group utilizes the talents of off-contract Ballet Austin dancers..."
"...After last year's venue, the Salvage Vanguard Theater, became standing-room-only, Califa moved this year's performances to the AustinVentures StudioTheater, largely gifted to the group by Ballet Austin. In four free shows, 13 Ballet Austin company members, apprentices, and trainees will perform works choreographed by Jennifer Hart, Michelle Thompson, Reginald Harris, and Lisa del Rosario to live music by Catherine Davis, Wino Vino, and Boff Hoffnar..."
"...The last-minute change in program order that yielded Jennifer Hart's premiere, To Here, first on Ballet Austin's triple bill instead of last, was a mixed blessing. On the one hand, Hart's poignant and skillful work, with vibrant designs that rivaled any of this season's wildflower displays, set a tone of ebullience and catharsis..."
"...2) JENNIFER HART Ballet's not dead, and neither is romance...."
"...The final work, Jennifer Hart's "The Road (Part 1)," for the 17 Butler fellows, flung us into something completely different. In vibrant mismatched outfits (designed by Emily Cawood) and painted faces, the dancers were a gaggle of rag dolls, giddily exploring a range of movement, to Bach, as though for the first time – pelvis bumps, bouncing jumps, pouting faces, languid rolls across the floor..."
"...• Ballet Austin has received a fellowship initiative grant from the New York Choreographic Institute to support an emerging choreographer developing new classical dance. That choreographer is Jennifer Hart, who has taught at the Ballet Austin Academy for four years and was a finalist for the Festival des Arts de Saint-Sauveur 2011 international choreography competition..."
"...Simply put, it's a fun little film, eminently watchable without burdening viewers by trying to be anything other than a broad, solid comedy. Bullock, in full tomboy mode, plays FBI special agent Gracie Hart, who infiltrates the Miss United States Pageant to ferret out a mad bomber called “Citizen.” Along for the ride is former Law & Order hunk Bratt as FBI agent Eric Matthews, who's eager to prove himself to his superiors via this plum assignment..."
"..."Personally, Jeanne Claire played a major role in introducing my company, performa/dance, to Austin audiences," says founder Jennifer Hart. "It's very difficult to build an audience when you don't know the community and the community doesn't know you..."
"...6) JENNIFER HART/ASHLEY LYNN/EDWARD CARR/A LARGE AREA RUG ("On Truth and Love," Performa Dance)..."
"...I don't poo-poo "hot relationships," and television has had its share of them. Frank Furillo and Joyce Davenport of NBC's Hill Street Blues (1981-87) come to mind, as do Jonathan and Jennifer Hart from the Sidney Sheldon confection Hart to Hart (ABC, 1979-1984)..."
"...Jennifer Hart, Ignite: Three Works/To Here..."
"...Jennifer Hart, "Wavemakers"..."
"...To be fair, Matt Swinney's Fashion Week was a bit more than that. Jaclyn "Jackie-O" Havlak and Patricia Paredes were with me at the inaugural Austin Fashion Awards last Sunday (I usually need at least one attendant, but this time I had two beauties on my arms), emceed by the coolly elegant Jennifer Hart..."
"...AustinVentures StudioTheater, 501 W. Third Award-winning choreographer Jennifer Hart is back, utilizing off-season ballet dancers in contemporary works..."
"...If Austin Craft Mafia members were to wear pinstripes, shoulder holsters, or gang colors, they'd have to be vintage and handmade. While waiting for their table at the Clay Pit last Wednesday night, these made women -- Kristin Adkins, Jen Nakatsu Arnston, Jenny Hart, Tina Lockwood, and Jennifer Perkins -- epitomized DIY hipster chic with their distinctive vinyl handbags, reconstructed Fifties day dresses, and chunky plastic bracelets..."
"...Some artists feel trepidation at the prospect of strangers swarming their homes. "I imagine I would feel somewhat vulnerable if I was showing in my home studio," says Catherine Hart, "as the public would suddenly have a window into not just my work and artistic output but also my personal life." Since Hart's home studio does not fall within the tour's eligibility boundaries, she will be showing her drawings and paintings elsewhere."I get to sidestep" that vulnerability, she adds, "but I wonder if I would leave more of an imprint for the public if they saw the whole package of me as an artist." Her husband, printmaker Matt Rebholz, is also showing at EAST...."
"...Now Austin has craft superstars, big players in the rise of the craft game. Did you know that Sublime Stitching's Jenny Hart was recently featured in Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine? In addition to working on Stitch and Austin Craft Mafia projects, Jesse Kelly-Landes, Tina Sparkles, Karly Hand, and Jennifer Perkins currently co-host the DIY Network craft show Stylelicious..."
"...Top to bottom, it’s a pretty nifty-looking lineup. There are the big projects from bold-faced names, like the work-in-progress premiere of Judd Apatow and Amy Schumer’s collaboration Trainwreck and Headliner screenings like Alex Gibney’s Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, the Will Ferrell Is Going to Prison comedy with Kevin Hart, Get Hard, and action-comedy Spy, Paul Feig’s third film with lucky rabbit Melissa McCarthy, who’ll also star in his 2016 Ghostbusters redo..."
