About Giordano Dance Chicago
Giordano Dance Chicago (GDC), now in its 57th Anniversary Season, is America’s original jazz dance company, founded in 1963 by legendary dance pioneer Gus Giordano. GDC creates and presents new and innovative jazz dance choreography, often redefining and expanding the very definition of jazz dance, and brings this invaluable American art form to audiences and students of all ages and from all ethnic backgrounds. GDC is dedicated, also, to the preservation and promotion of the Giordano Technique. Whether on the stage or in the classroom, we strive to enrich lives through dance, and it is this solid mission statement and organizational vision which informs all of the organization’s activities.
The value that Giordano Dance Chicago brings to its local, national, and international communities is the universal and life-affirming experience of witnessing dance that is powerful, passionate, elegant, and celebratory.
