About Hubbard Street Dance
Based in Chicago, Hubbard Street Dance is a company which was formed in 1977 as the “Lou Conte Dance Studio.” It is known as one of the world’s best contemporary dance companies, which started off as a studio under the leadership of Lou Conte. Since the studio was situated at the edge of LaSalle Street and Hubbard Street, it came to be known as Hubbard Dance Street in the years to come. In its initial days, Lou Conte started the performances by gathering an ensemble of just four dancers which gave shows at some of the best centers of Chicago. Today, with an ensemble of eighteen skilled dancers, the company stands as an original force in the world of contemporary dance.
Soon after its establishment, the company started getting critical response and was joined by a number of famous artists and choreographers. Barbara G. Cohen also joined Hubbard Street Dance and became its first Executive Director. The company stayed under the directorship of Conte for 23 years. During this time period, Conte successfully initiated different projects and established a lot of relationships. Under his leadership, the company built connection with artists like Twlya Tharp, Daniel Ezralow, Nacho Duato, Lynne Taylor Corbett, Margo Sappington and Jiri Kylian. These people were related to the company in one way or the other and played a major role in making Hubbard Street Dance one of the best dance companies in the world.
After the retirement of Conte in 2000, the directorship was taken over by Jim Vincent who continued to polish the repute of Hubbard Street Dance in Chicago. His major contributions to the company included the upgrading of repertoire and the beginning of the “Inside Out Choreography Workshop.” Established with the help of “Choreography Fellowship,” this workshop serves as a place where original choreography is presented by the nation’s emerging talent. In 2009, a new era in the history of Hubbard Street Dance began. Music and dance started highlighting the culture of Chicago and numerous dance programs were arranged at the Millennium Park all year long. The same year, Glenn Edgerton took over the directorship of the company. Under the artistic leadership of Edgerton, the company flourished even more and achieved considerable success.
The aim of Hubbard Street Dance is to develop long-lasting partnerships with cultural organizations and other notable communities in an effort to keep the traditions of the nation alive. The company gives its performances all year long, both domestically and internationally. In 1997, a second company, Hubbard Street 2 was also established by Conte and Julie Nakagawa especially for the young artists. Now under the directorship of Taryn Kaschock Russell, the company makes appearances throughout the US. Hubbard Street Dance has various educational and community programs which engage thousands of students every year.
