Choreographer - Teacher - Performer

Jason strives to find humanity in his work.  His ability to tell a story with movement is one of his greatest strengths.  His choreography is rooted in the reality of the story and the movement is character motivated.  His characters range from janitors to boxers and everything in between.  His unique twist on classic pieces as well as his ability to translate standards into contemporary contexts makes Jason's work accessible to audiences of all demographics.
While his ultimate goal is to impact the lives of his audience on a personal level, he never forgets that his first job is to entertain.  Directors love Marquette because he is fast on his feet and can adapt at the drop of a hat.  His ability to embrace their vision and incorporate their ideas makes him invaluable.
Jason's choreography has been showcased on the professional stage in New York City, Helsinki, Finland and Guayaquil, Ecuador.  He has choreographed everything from full-length musicals to music videos to industrials.  In 2008 he choreographed the SUNY New Paltz production of Stephen Sondheim's Company and mounted his self-produced NYC production called The Next Step. In 2009 he choreographed Greg Lato's video, Monday Morning Breakdown.  Most recently, his work was seen at the 2010 Whitney Gala in Upstate New York.   For a review of The Next Step, visit this link at NYTheatre.com.  To read what people think about working with Jason, visit the Choreography page on this site located under Testimonials on the main menu.
