If the first teases of spring haven't gotten you longing for the summer's heat, the sexy, jazz-based choreography of internationally acclaimed River North Dance Chicago will. On the scene since1989, the company is beloved for its bold, emotive, theatrical dance, and has been the subject of three Emmy-winning documentaries on the company and the individual stories of its dancers.
Three members of the company hail from Western New York, including Rochester-born Hayley Meier, who is a former member of Rochester City Ballet. The company has performed throughout the United States and abroad, and in 2012 completed a 28-city tour through Germany, Switzerland, and Russia.
The dance group will perform one night only, on Saturday, March 23, at 8 p.m. in the Callahan Theatre at Nazareth College Arts Center (4245 East Ave.). Tickets to the show cost $30-$60. To reserve your seat or for more information, call 389-2170 or visit artscenter.naz.edu.
