MASTERCLASS WITH RIVER NORTH: MONDAY, JAN. 23 FROM 6 - 7:30 P.M. DU PONT HALL
Specializing in jazz-based contemporary style, River North Dance Chicago presents dynamic works combining athletic prowess and artistic perspective with bold, theatrical flair. RNDC was founded in 1989 and has since grown to become an internationally acclaimed company. Under the artistic direction of Frank Chaves, RNDC demonstrates depth and sophistication with a commitment to creating an accessible, enriching experience for audiences ranging from seasoned dance patrons to those having their first encounter with concert dance. The company has acquired and commissioned original works by Robert Battle, Lauri Stallings, Daniel Ezralow, Lynne Taylor-Corbett, and former Co-Artistic Director Sherry Zunker, among others. RNDC and Chaves were selected to receive the prestigious Choo-San Goh Award for Choreography in 2008.
Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun-Times claimed, “When the music starts, the heart responds. That’s the motto of River North Chicago Dance Company…. From high drama to low comedy, from torch songs to lyrical love duets, and from abstract modernism to jazzy ballroom style—River North…is a contemporary company that can do it all, and do it with technical splendor, to boot.”
