Critically acclaimed for their athletic, sensual and dynamic repertoire River North Dance Chicago presents dynamic works that combine athletic prowess and artistic perspective with bold, theatrical flair. Founded in 1989 and under the artistic leadership of Frank Chaves, RNDC demonstrates depth and sophistication with a commitment to creating an accessible, enriching experience for audiences. The company continues to make a name for themselves on the world stage traveling throughout the country and internationally. Core works by Chaves are augmented with an array of pieces by renowned choreographers including Mauro Astolfi, Adam Barruch, Robert Battle, Sidra Bell, Ashley Roland and Nejla Yatkin, among others.

As a cultural institution, River North not only produces, promotes and presents dance but it continually strives to makes vital connections between dancers and audience; creates partnerships and collaborations; assists in the professional development of dancers, choreographers and dance professionals; participates in cultural programming; and advocates dance and dance education.

The Company has been the subject of three documentaries produced by HMS Media for WTTW Chicago, which have each won an Emmy and numerous Emmy nominations.
