Giordano Dance Chicago – Dance St. Louis

“From the first moment that Giordano Dance Chicago steps on stage, the audience knows that this evening will be electric” – Chicago Tonight

 

“Giordano is, and always will be, American jazz dance royalty” – Chicago Tribune

 

Dance St. Louis, one of the countries longest running nonprofit dance presenters, continues its 57th season by presenting Giordano Dance Chicago, America’s original jazz dance company, Saturday, February 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the Touhill Performing Arts Center.  A free pre-show talk with artistic members of the company begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Touhill’s Terrace Lobby.

 

Giordano Dance Chicago is one of the longest running jazz companies in the world, one of the longest running professional dance companies in Chicago, and one of few dance companies in the United States to have achieved a milestone 60th anniversary. The company’s new works continually expand the boundaries of jazz and contemporary dance, and the company continues to stun audiences across the globe.

 

From its origins in Gus Giordano’s family-run studio to its current incarnation as a professionally-run organization with more than a half-century of worldwide performances (28 countries, 47 states, and more than 1,300 cities), Giordano Dance Chicago’s imprint on the art form of jazz dance is significantly far-reaching.

 

Currently, under the leadership of Artistic Director Nan Giordano and Executive Director Michael McStraw, Giordano Dance Chicago remains a world-class dance company and a driving force in Chicago’s thriving performing arts community.

 

Don’t miss this one-night-only performance by American jazz dance royalty!

 

“It is home-grown, it is American, it is our way of life” – Gus Giordano
