About Giordano Dance Chicago
In 55 years as an artistic leader and innovator, Giordano Dance Chicago – America’s original jazz dance company- has contributed greatly to the health of Chicago’s performing arts community. From their origins in Gus Giordano’s family-run studio to their current incarnation as a professionally-run organization with over a half-century of worldwide performances (27 countries, 46 states, and more than 1,200 cities), Girodano Dance Chicago’s imprint on the art form of jazz dance is far-reaching and significant. Contributions include: a vast repertoire of more than 165 original works; the mentoring of new and emerging choreographers; the commissioning of innumerable musical scores and production designers; the education of tens of thousands of under-served public school and community students; the creation of generations of professional dancers, and performances to millions of audience members worldwide.
