If you want my bet as to where the most exciting work on a Chicago stage will be happening next weekend I would tell you to head on over to The Dance Center at Columbia College. That is where Hubbard Street Dance Chicago will be presenting their annual choreographic workshop “Inside/Out, ” designed as an opportunity for HSDC dancers to work with their peers in creating original choreography then present their pieces as works-in-progress at public performances. HSDC’s aim for the program is to prepare dancers with valuable skills to help facilitate their transition to the next stage of their career. If supporting these artists is not reason enough to buy a ticket, consider that some of Hubbard Street’s most intriguing dances have sprung from this workshop. It is a chance to see this electric company lay the groundwork for the innovative choreography that it brings to the world every year. (William Scott)
