Wide Variety! Dance Chicago’s 25th Anniversary Party at Athenaeum Theatre (November 16, 2019)

Dance Chicago has put together a night of a vast variety of dances. Between each dance, everyone is pulling out their flashlights on their phones to read who is on next. They should have a screen on stage that displays the next performer or have an announcer / host.

Here are some of the highlights:

RawFunkyStreetFlav

It’s about the journey

Choreographer: VioLa Elkins / Tarik Hasan (freestyle)

 

This freestyle hip hop dance is excellent. The performers are so graceful and talented.

 

Water Street Dance Milwaukee

Choreographer: Morgan Williams

This group from Milwaukee just formed this year. The performance is very athletic and impressive and they are off to a great start.

 

Gus Legacy Co

Choreographer: Sarah Ford Hardy

Music: Coming in Hot by Andy Mineo

Gus Giordano is known for jazz dance. However, they also do hip hop. This performance features 9 dancers decked out in sleek red and black outfits. The choreography is fantastic as it combines full company movement with many solos.

 

Comedy Dance Chicago

Tiny Dancer, Return to Innocence, Cheek to Cheek, Staring Contest

This group provides the comic relief for the night. It’s not laugh out loud funny, but it will make you smile. The music selections of I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing and Tiny Dancer are great choices.

Spring to Dance festival organized by Dance St. Louis at Touhill Performing Arts Center of the University of Missouri in St. Louis on May 23-25, 2019.

This is a great finale with 19 dancers filling the stage with movement. The choreography is excellent as everyone moves in sync.
