In Dance Magazine’s January issue, the monthly’s annual “25 to Watch” features three Chicagoans: Hubbard Street’s Johnny McMillan, Hedwig dancer Victor Alexander and Luna Negra’s Monica Cervantes—a very deserving trio with exciting prospects in the new year.
You’ll want to catch Hubbard Street’s danc(e)volve: New Works Festival at the MCA, June 13–16, where McMillan might follow up his precocious Path and Observations (now part of the Hubbard Street II repertoire) with something even better. Meanwhile, Cervantes, after premiering Requiem—her first, much-lauded work for Luna in the spring of 2012—sets a new piece for the company’s March 9 performance at the Harris Theater. Also in the issue, Giordano’s Lindsey Leduc writes about why she dances.
Here’s to a great 2013, dance lovers.
