Reimagine the future of a tradition


Can a dance like the Chinese Tea variation from The Nutcracker—only one minute long but fraught with harmful stereotypes—have a real chance to exist within a more inclusive future?

Our New Artistic Director

In her own words

In this video message, Linda-Denise Fisher-Harrell expresses her joy upon being named Artistic Director of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and shares the profound journey that has led her to this exciting full-circle moment.


An artist pens her choreographic love letter to her home city, which at once fills her spirit and breaks her heart. An expatriate artist breaks free of quarantine at home by exploring the expanse of his own imagination. Five choreographers — all former Hubbard Street Dancers — come home this year to collaborate with the company on a groundbreaking virtual season. Innovative and inspiring, this season features acclaimed and emerging artists pushing into the unknown to create contemporary dance that speaks powerfully to our present moment.       




The Hub is your portal to exploring what dance means to you and the wider world through Hubbard Street’s diverse set of online programming.

Hubbard Street is committed to keeping our dancers collaborating and creating, with full salary and benefits. It is not too bold to say that this commitment is rare in the performing arts at this unprecedented time. We make this commitment because we believe that — even in a world of empty stages and empty seats — these artists still have the power to create compelling, engaging, poignant, beautiful work that shines a light on what it means to be human. If you share this belief, and if you cherish their creativity, please support Hubbard Street Dance Chicago right now.
