Hubbard Street Dance Chicago
About Hubbard Street Dance Chicago
On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, world-renowned Hubbard Street Dance Chicago (HSDC) returns to Jacob’s Pillow with a diverse program featuring today’s leading contemporary choreographers including Crystal Pite and resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo, among others.
Praised as “a near-perfect storm of movement, music, and choreography” (Los Angeles Times), HSDC brings an eclectic repertoire performed by an impeccably strong, technically-driven ensemble of dancers.
An audience favorite since their Pillow debut in 1983, HSDC has performed at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival more than a dozen times.

On July 9, 1942, the Ted Shawn Theatre, the first theatre in the United States designed specifically for dance, opened its doors. Architect Joseph Franz, who also built The Music Shed at Tanglewood, had agreed with Shawn that the theatre exterior must harmonize with the existing farmhouse and barns.
