They premiered their work one in 2013 at the Athenaeum Theatre and are back with the appropriately titled next. Learn More

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, one of the world’s premiere contemporary dance companies, will burn the stage this May with the Chicago premiere of LINES Ballet artistic director Alonzo King’s Following the Subtle Current Upstream, which will mark the beginning of an unprecedented multi-year collaboration between Hubbard Street and the San Francisco based dance company.
Hubbard Street’s Summer Series will also offer the return of 2010 audience favorites: Jirí Kylián’s powerful and striking 27’52” that had its Chicago premiere in March 2010 at the Harris Theater; and a revival of Untouched, a spellbinding work created for the company in May 2010 by illustrious choreographer Aszure Barton.

Hubbard Street’s artists hail from four countries and 12 U.S. states, and comprise a superlative ensemble of virtuosity and versatility.
Since its founding by Lou Conte in 1977, Hubbard Street has grown through the establishment of multiple platforms. Each is dedicated to the support and advancement of dance as an art form, as a practice, and as a method for generating and sustaining communities of all kinds.
Hubbard Street 2, directed by Terence Marling, cultivates young professional dancers, identifies next-generation choreographers, and performs domestically and abroad, in service of arts education, collaboration, experimentation and audience development. Extensive Youth, Education and Community Programs, directed by Kathryn Humphreys, are models in the field of arts education, linking the performing company’s creative mission to the lives of students and families.
Youth Dance Program classes at the Hubbard Street Dance Center are open to young dancers ages 18 months to 16 years. And at the Lou Conte Dance Studio, directed by founding Hubbard Street Dancer Claire Bataille, workshops and master classes allow access to expertise, while a broad variety of weekly classes offer training at all levels in jazz, ballet, modern, tap, African, hip-hop, yoga, Pilates and Zumba.
