About River North Dance Chicago

Critically acclaimed for its athletic, sensual and dynamic repertoire, River North Dance Chicago (RNDC) presents dynamic works that combine athletic prowess and artistic perspective with bold, theatrical flair.

Founded in 1989, RNDC is now under the leadership of artistic director Frank Chaves and executive director Gail Kalver. The company continues to make a name for itself on the world stage, travelling throughout the country and internationally.

According to The Arizona Republic, “Jazz dance never looked so … funny, mystical, poignant, inexplicable, sexy.”

Of the company, The St. Louis Post Dispatch said, “In a stylistically wide-ranging program, the company kept the energy high, while allowing for engagingly creative shifts in mood and atmosphere.”
