BWW Review: Dance Fail at Fall For Dance Photo BWW Review: Dance Fail at Fall For Dance
by Juan Michael Porter II - Oct 3, 2019

The continued proliferation of rhythmless music plunges Fall For Dance 2019's Program 1 into a miasma of middling potpourri. From Kyle Abraham rendering Misty Copeland into a sterile robot to Crystal Pite's droning narration, this was an evening sorely in need of inventive rhythm and grooves. Thank goodness then for the visiting South Africans of Vuyani Dance Theatre.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, under the direction of Glenn Edgerton, is one of the most accomplished dance companies in the United States today. After an international career with the Joffrey Ballet and later at the Nederlands Dance Theater 1, both as dancer and artistic director, Edgerton brings unique skills to his position. It shows in his company's performances--serious, accomplished and professional--a real mark that the company is a cut above the rest.

by Valerie-Jean Miller - Jan 16, 2019

Hubbard Street, a well-established Contemporary Dance Company presents an interesting collage of dance pieces that are demanding technique-wise yet so fluid and rhythmic they make it look effortless and fresh. I say collage because the evening painted a bigger picture through each piece, making it complete by the finish. The sixteen dancers are amazing physical interpreters of a feeling, a mood, an emotion, a vibe. They are strong, versatile and vibrant. The pieces by themselves are each complex, deep, bold, unique; with maximum controlled energy, extreme focus and inner and outer strength required, or rather, mandatory to perform them. That verbiage might seem a bit jumbled, but it's what I felt after seeing these dancers perform... (That's my stream-of-consciousness statement)

BWW Reviews: Hubbard Street Dance Chicago Takes New York City
by Rose Marija - May 19, 2015

This is a contemporary ballet company in the style of European contemporary companies. Under the artistic direction of Glenn Edgerton -- a former beloved dancer with the Joffrey Ballet for 11 years and then with the acclaimed Nederlands Dance Theater for five years, after which he became Artistic Director, leading NDT I for a decade -- this company shines. What a pleasure it is to see this level of energy and movement quality in a contemporary company, as I did on opening night, Tuesday May 12th, at the Joyce Theater.
