New Orleans debut! The dynamic performers of America’s original jazz dance company “invariably run on high-octane fuel and generate a similarly high-powered response from their audience. From the first moment that Giordano Dance Chicago steps on stage, the audience knows that this evening will be electric” (Chicago Tonight). Celebrating over 60 years, this iconic organization’s imprint on the art form is profound with worldwide performances in over 1,300 cities. The evening of quintessentially American works will feature the premiere of Gershwin B by Emmy-Award winning and So You Think You Can Dance choreographer Al Blackstone in a glorious tribute to the music of George Gershwin.

America’s original jazz dance company soars into their 62nd season with energy and momentum. Giordano Dance Chicago (GDC) is an iconic cultural institution with deep roots in Chicago and around the globe. As one of the longest-running jazz dance companies in the world, GDC occupies a singular position within the local, national, and international dance communities. From its origins in founder Gus Giordano’s original school in Evanston, IL, to its current incarnation as a Chicago-based world-class dance company, GDC boasts more than a half century of worldwide performances (28 countries, 47 states, more than 1300 cities). Entering her 40th season, Nan Giordano has led the company as Artistic Director, responsible for commissioning innovative choreographic works and mentoring thousands of aspiring dancers.

The company creates and presents innovative jazz dance choreography, often redefining and expanding the very definition of jazz dance, and brings this invaluable American art form to audiences and students of all ages and from all backgrounds. The company is one of few in the world that has a foundational technique (NGCP©) with certified teachers in 36 states and 8 countries. GDC is committed to Youth Arts Education at home and on tour. In their home city, their Jazz Dance/Science & Health program is a robust program in which GDC company dancers teach 250 classes to hundreds of students in four under-resourced CPS schools at no cost to them.

Stated simply, Giordano Dance Chicago offers to all the universal and life-affirming experience of witnessing dance that is powerful, passionate, elegant, and celebratory.
