After nearly ten years Garth Fagan will return to Chicago and he is making sure that the entire family can enjoy his lauded ensemble. Best-known for his Tony-Award winning choreography for Walt Disney’s “The Lion King,” Garth Fagan has been called “one of the great reformers of American dance.” His singular dance language draws on many sources: the sense of weight in modern dance, the torso-centered movement and energy of Afro-Caribbean, the speed and precision of ballet and the rule-breaking experimentation of the post-moderns. This is a must-see for any dance enthusiast and their family. (William Scott)
