The 2017 Season marks the 20th Anniversary of the Ballet Chicago Studio Company, an intensive performance program for highly talented pre-professional dance students who are preparing for careers on the stage. As a centerpiece of the Anniversary, on May 6, 2017, Ballet Chicago will present its annual Spring Series of two performances at the Harris Theater. This season’s production, A Platinum Anniversary, will celebrate the Ballet Chicago Studio Company’s 20th Anniversary with a program featuring a World Premiere by renowned Chicago-based choreographer Frank Chaves set to original music by Josephine Lee, Artistic Director of the Chicago Children’s Choir, who will accompany the dancers herself on stage. The performance also includes revivals of masterworks by George Balanchine, and exciting works by Ballet Chicago Founder and Artistic Director Daniel Duell, and Ballet Chicago Resident Choreographer Ted Seymour.
