Artist / Program Description:
“It’s called the second company, but there is nothing second-class about Hubbard Street 2,” writes Hedy Weiss in the Chicago Sun-Times. Six gifted dancers who are the rising stars of tomorrow, perform a repertoire of works by some of the nation’s most promising young choreographers. Created in 1997, the company has become a distinguished training ground for young, professional dancers and choreographers; a major component of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s (HSDC) education and community programs; a resource for new dancers for HSDC’s main company; and a performing company in its own right.
Hubbard Street 2 is versatile not only on stage, but also in accommodating your needs. From in-school dance presentations to fully-produced evening concerts, the company helps make dance accessible in your community. The successful Dance Informance blends an exciting performance of select repertoire with insights into dance styles, choreography, technique, and technical stage aspects. These narrated presentations help audience members new to dance to have an enjoyable experience, and also give the dance aficionado something not revealed in program inserts.
