Event Description

Closing out the Auditorium Theatre’s “Made in Chicago” Dance Series is America’s original jazz dance company, Giordano Dance Chicago. Audience members will be taken through a range of emotions, musical genres, and dance styles as the company presents a program from its critically-acclaimed repertoire: Lost in This World, a work from “Choreographer to the Stars” Liz Imperio (Jennifer Lopez, Gloria Estefan, Madonna); Before My Eyes, the company’s 160th world premiere piece choreographed by Giordano dancer Joshua Blake Carter; Grusin Suite by Frank Chaves (River North Dance Chicago); Roni Koresh’s EXit4; Jon Lehrer’s A Ritual Dynamic; and Autumn Eckman’s commonthread (performed to live music played by violinist Dan Myers). Now in its landmark 54th season, this iconic company creates passionate, celebratory, and high-energy choreography, often redefining and expanding the very definition of American jazz dance.
