ANNUAL REPORT
MISSION
The core purpose of Hubbard Street Dance
Chicago is to bring artists, art and audiences
together to enrich, engage and change lives
through the experience of dance.
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is an organization
of four components:
HUBBARD STREET, the main, professional
performing company
THE LOU CONTE DANCE STUDIO — where Hubbard
Street began in 1974 — its public facility for
Chicago dancers of all skill levels
EDUCATION, YOUTH & COMMUNITY PROGRAMS,
initiatives serving more than 3,000 students in
nearly 100 classrooms each year
HUBBARD STREET 2, the second professional
performing company
A MESSAGE FROM HUBBARD STREET’S E XECUTIVE LEADERSHIP
Hubbard Street’s 2011–12 season marked a turning point for the
company, as many investments made in revenue-generating
programming brought significant, increasing returns. During
the economic crisis, Hubbard Street’s board and staff
leadership strategized around new programs and adjustments
to its business plan to help the organization weather this
challenging time. As a result, Hubbard Street flourished.
Our Youth Dance classes, launched in 2010, now generate
nearly $200,000 in annual revenue. Our restructured
business model, which includes a “home season” of Chicago
performances, and in-house tour booking focused on the
nation’s leading dance venues, has produced a 40% increase
over the past four years in our local audience base, and
partnership opportunities with nationally recognized arts
organizations. These successes helped our operating budget
break even for the first time in five years.
With these programs and strategies firmly established,
Hubbard Street looked toward the future in 2011 and 2012 to
discover new ways to assure sustainability for itself and the
art of contemporary dance. Advancing the art form is the heart
of Hubbard Street’s vision, requiring experimentation and
innovation through creation of new works.
During the 2011–12 season, Hubbard Street transformed its
methods for cultivating new works into a new Choreographic
Development Initiative. Through this program, Hubbard Street
employed its Inside/Out Choreographic Workshop and National
Choreographic Competition as launching pads for the firstever danc(e)volve: New Works Festival. Nine works of original
choreography premiered over two weeks at the Museum of
Contemporary Art Chicago’s Edlis Neeson Theater, under
consideration to join Hubbard Street’s active repertoire.
danc(e)volve re-conceives the way new work becomes part of
the company’s portfolio; we believe it can serve as a model for
choreographic development at dance organizations throughout
the country. Already, one piece created and premiered through
danc(e)volve has been commissioned for Hubbard Street
performances at the Joyce Theater in New York City.

In 2011 and 2012, Hubbard Street concentrated on sustainable
efforts in arts education. With a focus on measurability, we
continued to develop assessment and evidence-gathering
methods to communicate the benefits of dance education for
students and teachers. With this vigorous research agenda, as
well as our work to convene Chicago organizations around the
role of the arts in the new Common Core standards, Hubbard
Street served as a leader in the city’s arts education community.
collaborations unique to Chicago. In addition, Hubbard Street
supports Mayor Emanuel in efforts to foster international
exchanges, crucial to nurturing the cultural community. In
November 2011, Hubbard Street became the first contemporary
dance company in the U.S. to be invited to perform in
St. Petersburg by Nacho Duato, Artistic Director of the
Mikhailovsky Ballet. Russian audiences experienced firsthand
the high caliber of dancing we produce in Chicago.
To ensure future financial health, Hubbard Street pioneered
revenue-generating ideas. In June 2012, we were selected
as one of 47 organizations nationwide from a field of 2,200
applicants to receive a 2012 ArtPlace Grant. Nearly $170,000
in support will allow us to develop the “Dance as a Learning
Platform” program, to be implemented at 1871 Chicago, a new
community-led center for technology-sector entrepreneurs.
The program’s goal is to develop a replicable model,
curriculum and possible earned-revenue stream.
The commitment of our funders, and their belief in our work,
made it possible for us to explore new programming in 2011
and 2012. These investments produced benefits for Hubbard
Street, contemporary dance as an art form, and the city of
Chicago in both the short- and long-term. We look forward
to continuing our collaborations with donors, artists and
audiences — those valuable relationships that allow us to
continue to serve proudly as a U.S. leader in great dance.
The city of Chicago went through its own transition period in
2011 and 2012: the election of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a leader
who believes emphatically in the arts and their benefits
to communities. Mayor Emanuel proclaimed his desire for
Chicago to become an international destination for dance, and
we’re pleased to work alongside him toward this objective.
Hubbard Street continued to offer distinctive, multi-disciplinary

DANCE CHICAGO
The main company’s 17 members in the 2011–12 season were again some of the only dancers in the U.S.
to rehearse and perform full-time, all year long.

Hubbard Street’s artists hailed from four countries and 10
states, and comprised a superlative ensemble of virtuosity
and versatility, on display locally, around the country and in
St. Petersburg, in the Russian Federation.

stamina, technique and interpretive skills.

PRE-PROFESSIONAL
PROGRAMS
With a mandate to nurture innovation in the studio, onstage and within the company, Hubbard Street
cultivated a new audience of dance artists and administrators in 2011–12 through three Pre-Professional
Programs: Hubbard Street 2, the Summer Intensive and administrative internships.
n
Rigorously selected from auditions held in ten U.S. cities, 158
of the most talented, passionate and career-focused young
dancers in the country traveled to Chicago’s Hubbard Street
Dance Center and to studios in Iowa City.
n
Summer Intensive students took daily advanced ballet
technique classes and learned Hubbard Street repertoire
from company members and artistic staff.
n
Demonstrating its commitment to cultivating notable talent,
and to utilizing the program as a path for young dancers into
the organization year-round, Hubbard Street selected four
outstanding young artists from its Summer Intensive and
invited them to join Hubbard Street 2.

“Every year, Hubbard Street 2 is reinvented. It’s the collective
energy, the hunger for growth, the investment in change that
defines HS2, and everyone involved is transformed, including me.”
—Taryn Kaschock Russell, Director, Hubbard Street 2
n
During the 2011–12 season, HS2 traveled to Iowa City,
Arkansas, Detroit, Aspen, Garden City, New York and WinstonSalem, North Carolina. While touring, the dancers mentored
high-school and college students through residencies,
workshops, master classes and repertory coaching sessions.
“I made it my responsibility and obligation to coach these
dancers and show them how great they could be. In return,
whether they knew it or not, they showed me what I could do and
how great I could be.” —Hubbard Street 2 Dancer Felicia McBride
n
The first danc(e)volve: New Works Festival in January
featured HS2 in five of nine works, one of which was
choreographed by HS2 Dancer Johnny McMillan (promoted
to the main company later that year).
“Being a member of Hubbard Street 2 changed everything.
The two years I spent there gave me the tools and
experience I needed and the confidence and the belief that
I had what it took then and that I have something to offer
now.” —Hubbard Street 2 Alumnus Nicholas Korkos
n
In addition to identifying, training and employing some of
the world’s most promising young dancers, Hubbard Street
offers rewarding internships in administration, development,
education, production and videography.
n
Our internship program includes the prestigious Kemper
Fellowship, which allows an undergraduate to receive a
stipend for their work at Hubbard Street.
“I was able to experience a side of the dance world that
provided me with even more respect, appreciation, love and
passion for the art.” —Earlyn Whitehead, dance major and
summer videography intern
