gearing up for their first senior dance concert.
“Genesis: The Next Generation of Chicago Dancers, Emerging Artists Empowered by Citywide Partnership & Collaboration” is a presentation by the first graduating dance class at ChiArts and a tribute to the vibrant dance community that has nurtured the artistic development of the school’s dancers over the past four years. Genesis will feature repertory from the River North Dance Chicago and Ensemble Español as well as three new works from local choreographers Brandon DiCriscio, Lizzie MacKenzie and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s Penny Saunders.
ChiArts’ first ever senior concert March 20, 2013 will begin with a prelude that offers audience members a glimpse into the journey of a dance student then will kick into high gear with contemporary movement that highlights the dancers’ youthful vigor and athleticism.
“Genesis” will be held at Benito Juarez Community Academy, 1450-1510 W. Cermak. Tickets are $8 for students/seniors and $12 for adults and are available online at chiarts.org or at the door one hour before the show.
