Many places to dine on Michigan Avenue $-$$$. In the theater they sell wine and soft drinks. Vendors sell water and drinks inside the theater as well.

Thank you Goldstar for introducing me to a new dance troupe that I had never seen before, they were fantastic! Each piece was innovative, and each was so different than the others.

I went to see the show based on the previous show that had many tangos and very interesting modern pieces. Was disappointed that they had too few tango pieces and modern pieces were weaker that before.

In particular, the piece with balls was...continued

The dancers were talented. But the production&background were minimum. Random selections without any core theme to tie dance performances together. Reminded us of a highschool recital.

Description

Additional selections from RNDC’s acclaimed repertoire include:


  • Evolution of a Dream, a full-company re-envisioning of one of RNDC’s classic and signature works “Reality of a Dreamer,” created by Co-Artistic Director Emerita Sherry Zunker in 1992. The piece is set to a new version of the original song, “Sweet Dreams,” by co-composers Annie Lennox and David Stewart as performed by His Rock Fabulous Orchestra.

  •  

  • Fixé, a revival of Artistic Director Frank Chaves’ first choreographed duet. It is a haunting, animalistic and other-worldly pas de deux. Set to music from Cirque du Soleil, this performance is both elegantly romantic and abstract.

  •  

  • Train, choreographed by Robert Battle, Artistic Director for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. This commanding and bold work is an abstract ritual in three parts set to a percussive live recording.
