EveJacobs is a dance artist based in New York City. Originally from the Chicago area, she completed her early training at Dance Center Evanston, and went on to study ballet at North Carolina School of the Arts. Eve earned her BFA in Dance from The Juilliard School, where she held a Gluck Community Service Fellowship, served as Assistant Resident Coordinator, and received upon graduation the Hector Zaraspe Prize for Choreography. In 2015, Ms. Jacobs joined Jessica Lang Dance, with whom she performed in over 75 cities across six countries. She originated roles in many of Ms. Lang’s new works and was featured with the company in operas at The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, and Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival. While on tour, Eve taught masterclasses internationally alongside Ms. Lang, and staged Lang’s work for the Des Moines Dance Project and American Ballet Theater’s Make A Ballet outreach program. Since then, Eve has enjoyed performing with the Merce Cunningham Trust, Washington National Opera, and Cornfield Dance, where she is currently a company member.
As a choreographer, Eve has created original dances for Columbia Ballet Collaborative, Evanston Dance Ensemble, and for an alternative Richard III at Fourth Street Theater. In 2022, her work will be seen in a 3D-animation short film with JuVee Productions.
Passionate about arts education, Eve has served as a teaching artist through New York City Ballet, and as an adjunct at DeSales University. She is thrilled to join the Battery Dance team, and to begin her program at PS 481 in the Bronx.
