Visceral Dance Chicago

Founded in 2013 by Artistic Director Nick Pupillo, Visceral Dance Chicago is dedicated to a bold and progressive world of movement. Its diverse and impressive repertoire represents the best of emerging, established, innovative and internationally recognized choreographers. Named in 2015 as one of Dance Magazine ‘ 25 to Watch, Visceral Dance Chicago’s accomplishments and potential in the community were acknowledged as “breath[ing] life into the Chicago community"(Chicago Stage Standard).  

The Company has grown alongside the school of the same name—Visceral Dance Center continues to train children to adults, beginner to professional dancers, as it has for the last ten years. Visceral stays in contact with its community and city as a whole through its performances, extensive training opportunities and outreach, compelling audiences and students to continue dancing and connecting with the arts community. 

Visceral Dance Chicago launches into its fifth season with “strong athleticism, a dense and inherent technical proficiency, and a lot of passion."(LA Splash). First this season is the company’s Fall Engagement, to be performed at North Shore Center for the Performing Arts on September 16, 2017, and at the Harris Theater, where the company is in residence, on October 7, 2017.
