Giordano Dance Chicago

by

comment
Native St. Louisan Gus Giordano is generally acknowledged as the father of jazz dance, which he popularized with Giordano Dance Chicago from its founding in 1963 to his death in 2008. The company continues to bring his kinetic, high-energy dance to audiences around the world, and this weekend it brings it all back home to St. Louis. Giordano Dance Chicago presents six new works at its performances here, including the only way around is through, choreographed by Joshua Blake Carter (from a concept and structure devised by Nan Giordano), and Feelin' Good Sweet by Ray Leeper (frequent choreographer for Dancing with the Stars).

8 p.m. Fri. & Sat. (Apr. 10 & 11). Edison Theatre on Washington University's campus (6465 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-935-6543 or edison.wustl.edu). $20 to $36..
Fri., April 10, 8 p.m.; Sat., April 11, 8 p.m., 2015
