Dance troupe waltzes into Newman Center

The athletic and exuberant dancers of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago will step their way onto the stage at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts on Oct. 20.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Jim Vincent, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2009. The company has been praised for its energy and virtuosity in many publications, including The New York Times, and has appeared at dance venues including the Kennedy Center and Joyce Theater.

“This was a unique opportunity to present one of the most reliably exciting and entertaining American dance companies, and, amazingly, one that has never performed in Denver before,” says Stephen Seifert, executive director of the Newman Center. “With 17 virtuosic dancers, it’s one of the largest contemporary dance ensembles touring the U.S. and fully capable of performing the wide range of works created by many different choreographers.”

The company will present a program that includes three pieces: “Lickety-Split” by Alejandro Cerrudo, “Bitter Suite” by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and “Gwana” by Nacho Duato.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago will perform at the Newman Center for Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m on Oct. 20. Tickets range from $28-$48. Parking is free. A free “Behind the Curtain” lecture will be held at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased through the Newman Center and TicketMaster. For more information, call 303-871-7720 or visit
