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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Visceral Dance Chicago
Choreographer: Nick Pupillo
This is a great finale with 19 dancers filling the stage with movement. The choreography is excellent as everyone moves in sync.
