Hubbard Street Dance in Boston

A few times over the years that I was living near Chicago, I
attempted to make it to a Hubbard show to no avail. Finally
tonight L, d. and I will make a night of it: Italian for dinner
and then off to the show!

Here is the program description:

In their 2004 Celebrity Series debut, Hubbard Street
Dance Chicago mesmerized crowds with energy that
literally jumped off the stage and into the audience.

From its humble beginnings nearly three decades ago,
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago has blossomed into one
of the most influential and original forces in contemporary
dance. Performing the repertory of the most innovative
international and American choreographers, the
company of 21 powerfully versatile dancers sails through
work blending ballet, jazz, and modern influences.

"The troupe can dance anything and everything-
and...they invariably do so with fluid brilliance and
understated virtuosity."

-Chicago Sun-Times
