Hubbard Street Dance Chicago's 2015 Annual Report

Page 1


“As founder of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and its artistic director for twenty-three years, dancer and choreographer Lou Conte built one of the world’s foremost contemporary dance companies as a leader in the field for nearly forty years.” —Newcity

MISSION The core purpose of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is to bring artists, art and audiences together to enrich, engage, and change lives through the experience of dance. Hubbard Street is comprised of four components: 1) a performing company of professional dancers; 2) Hubbard Street 2, an ensemble of early-career artists; 3) the Lou Conte Dance Studio (LCDS); and 4) Hubbard Street’s Youth, Education and Community Programs.

@juliacsmith: All the artsy folks at #DoGoodData2015 flocked to hear how data drives engagement @HubbardStreet. Thanks @amelianorthrup + @billmelamed! @TRGArts: Updating one of our most popular case studies with @HubbardStreet for #DoGoodData2015. Topic: Using data to make an action plan. Can’t wait!

A message from Hubbard Street’s Executive Leadership Throughout its history, Hubbard Street has been known for unique collaborations and innovative production concepts. Over the past year, we have furthered our focus on these areas with the goal of creating one-ofa-kind programs designed to grow audiences and increase participation in dance as an art form. Our 2014–15 performance season launched with the most critically acclaimed project in the company’s history: The Art of Falling. This production brought Chicago’s leading contemporary dancers together with the city’s foremost improvisational comedians for an original take on dance. Hubbard Street had never before collaborated with comedians onstage, and The Second City had never produced a dance show. The resulting artistic product was more successful and inspiring than anyone involved could have imagined. The Art of Falling combined aspects of sketch comedy, improvisational performance, contemporary dance and musical theater into a new and truly unique art form that was entertaining, comical, and moving, and showed how dance can enhance storytelling onstage. We also saw impactful results of work done over the past year in partnership with the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Resource Center for Autism and Developmental Delays (RCADD), to develop an Adaptive Dance Program curriculum benefiting students on the autism spectrum. We launched studio classes and inschool residencies using this clear, structured approach which focuses on developing gross motor skills and group dynamics, using dance-specific visual supports to ensure success for all students. Parents of these students attest that this program has truly changed the lives of their children, allowing them to witness many firsts — for some, the first time their children have expressed themselves through movement and body language, or the first time a connection with another person has brought a smile to their child’s face. This year Hubbard Street was also honored to be selected among 18 dance organizations nationwide to receive significant, multi-year funding through the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation’s Leadership Grants Program for Dance. This grant will allow for significant institutional growth that will increase Hubbard Street’s capacity to change lives through dance over the next five years. This funding will be directed towards data-driven patron engagement, board recruitment and engagement, artist/employee compensation and retention, and capitalization. Additionally, Hubbard Street will use this grant to expand our fee-based Youth Dance Program. Our goal is to continue the rapid growth of this program that is both a significant earned revenue generator and serves Hubbard Street’s mission in a variety of ways, by providing dance in an encouraging, creative environment where everyone is welcome.

“The legendary Lou Conte opened the doors in 1974 and it’s been unstoppable ever since. Now consisting of two companies, a training studio and education and community programs, Hubbard Street Dance is a leader in contemporary dance performance and education.” —Chicagoist Hubbard Street Dancer Alicia Delgadillo backstage at The Second City during a sneak preview of The Art of Falling. Photo by Quinn B Wharton.

These are just a few examples of the ways Hubbard Street has strived to test new ideas in service of our mission to change lives through dance. This report outlines more of the people and places we were able to reach throughout the past year, thanks to the support of our donors, and the passion of our artists, staff, board members, audience members, and students.

Hubbard Street’s critically acclaimed collaboration with The Second City, The Art of Falling, had the highest attendance in the company’s history of performing at Chicago’s Harris Theater. It was named to “best of 2014” lists by the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times and Newcity, and lauded by dance and

“Hugely entertaining and strikingly emotional…not-to-be-missed.” ★★★★/4 —Chicago Tribune

theater critics throughout Chicago.

“I won’t ruin the way the show builds from humor to something much more profound by giving away the ending, but I can tell you that you that you won’t forget it. It will leave you invigorated and hopeful. So get on Facebook. Get on Twitter. Tell Hubbard Street and Second City you’re willing to wait, be polite, but make it clear you want to see this show because, trust me: You do.” —The Chicago Maroon “[The Art of Falling] has real legs — a buoyant spirit counterbalanced by a genuine sense of gravity.” —Chicago Sun-Times Rashawn Scott in Hubbard Street + The Second City’s The Art of Falling.

The Art of Falling is commissioned by the Harris Theater for Music and Dance with support from Sandra and Jack Guthman through the Imagine campaign.

“This is only the second time the company has presented a program that focuses on a single artist, and taking in an entire evening of this gifted choreographer’s work is truly a luxury to experience... Still in Motion moves in a new direction without totally reinventing [Cerrudo’s] style or abandoning the beauty of it. And the Hubbard Street dancers, chameleons to the core, adapt effortlessly to whatever they are asked to do.” — Hubbard Street Dancers Jacqueline Burnett, foreground, Ana Lopez and Jonathan Fredrickson in Still in Motion by Resident Choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo.

Q: Why the words BODY, ENERGY, SPACE and TIME? A: Because dance is the BEST. These four words are core components of the universal dance vocabulary which Hubbard Street uses in schools, as well as in its Youth Dance Program classes. This vocabulary — based on the work of renowned dance theorist and teacher Rudolf Laban — is not tied to any one technique or tradition and, as such, allows all students to enter the world of choreography and performance on a level playing field. It ensures that students understand the fundamental movement concepts underlying all dance practices, helping prepare them to be interesting and effective artists, choreographers, and performers.

Hubbard Street’s Youth Dance Programs, offered at our studios at West Jackson Boulevard and South Racine Avenue, have grown to serve more than 1,000 students


annually from throughout the Chicago area.

“It’s all about dancers. [They are] what gets the message to you, and that’s very valuable — dancers are very, very valuable…and they all on some level have a vision. It’s a very strange thing to be a dancer. You have to imagine things constantly. I love them. They made me. Nothing I did, I did without dancers. Everything people think I am, I am actually not. It is just a message transmitted by a dancer. I am insanely grateful for, and I am in love with, all the people I’ve had the unbelievable privilege to work with, over the past fifty years.” —William Forsythe Choreographer William Forsythe accepts Hubbard Street’s Season 37 Spotlight Award.

STAY TUNED FOR SEASON 38, which begins with a full evening of repertoire celebrating one of the most influential figures in contemporary dance: William Forsythe. And, by popular demand, the return of The Art of Falling which will be performed in Los Angeles and Chicago over the next year.
