The New Orleans Ballet Association’s finale performance of 2017-18 season is the phenomenal Hubbard Street Dance Chicago on Saturday, April 7 at 8 p.m. at the Mahalia Jackson Theater of the Performing Arts.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is one the best companies in the world and one of the original forces in American contemporary dance known for its amazingly talented dancers and adventurous repertoire.
A true audience favorite, this elite group of 17 versatile and virtuosic dancers brings a very special program of master works from its illustrious history. From the company’s newest work to the revival of a jazzy swing classic by founding Artistic Director Lou Conte, it’s an awe-inspiring performance of “dancing so sublime it is close to hypnotizing.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
“It is a celebration of everything that Hubbard Street is and has been for the past 40 years. It puts the evolution of the company in the spotlight featuring the most beloved pieces of our history” – Artistic Director Glenn Edgerton.
A pre-performance talk with Artistic Director Glenn Edgerton will begin at 7:15 p.m. on Mezzanine Level M2 of the Mahalia Jackson Theater
