Hubbard Street Dance Chicago
Glen Edgerton, Artistic Director

Presented in partnership with Texas Theatre and Dance and KUT-FM

Celebrating its 40th season, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago has long been known as one of the most original forces in contemporary dance for its exceptionally talented dancers and a diverse repertoire of adventurous choreography.
Hubbard Street’s eighteen dancers display unparalleled versatility and technique. They transcend preconceptions by juxtaposing works inspired by a variety of genres, including jazz, modern, ballet, and theatrical. Under the artistic direction of Glenn Edgerton, Hubbard Street is one of the only American dance companies to operate year-round and produces bold and passionate performances in the Windy City, across the United States, and abroad.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago ought to bottle itself as a cure for the ills of the era.
