Chicago, IL – The critically acclaimed Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago (GJDC) presents its fall engagement at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance, 205 E. Randolph Dr. in Chicago’s Millennium Park Friday, Oct. 21 and Saturday Oct. 22 at 8 p.m. The October engagement is part of GJDC’s 2011-2012 “Passion and Fire” season.


In this engagement, GJDC will feature two world premieres: a  full-company work from renowned choreographer Kiesha Lalama and a duet from Artistic Associate Autumn Eckman.  The fall performances of “Passion and Fire” will also highlight popular selections from GJDC’s critically acclaimed repertoire including Del Dominguez’s spectacular Latin ballroom dance work “Sabroso,” premiered by GJDC in its spring 2011 Harris Theater engagement. The Chicago Tribune calls “Sabroso” “[a] sizzling concoction… fast-paced, invigorating…savory in its duets and even more impressive in its eye-catching ensemble designs. The mood is pure joy, the energy unstoppable.” The full program for the 2011 engagement will be announced at a later date. 


Tickets are $15-$60 and go on sale Aug. 5. For tickets or more information contact theHarris Theater box office at 312.334.7777 or visit harristheaterchicago.org. This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
