Mordine & Company Dance Theater is the Midwest's longest-running contemporary dance company, celebrating its 49th Anniversary in 2018. Under the direction of Shirley Mordine, the Company has produced works whose coalition of choreography and theatre has won critical acclaim. Praised for original choreography combining wit and sheer movement with technical sophistication, the Company's work has been described as "a two-edged sword of comedy and drama" and "adventurous, audacious, gutsy, and energetic.". On March 27th, 2018, it was announced at the Chicago Dance Month kickoff that Mordine will be receiving the Legacy Award from See Chicago Dance in September 2018. The Legacy Award honors individuals who have exhibited outstanding artistic command in the field and made a meaningful contribution in Chicago’s dance community.
