Canceled: 57th Season Spring Series

Giordano Dance Chicago

On March 12, 2020, Governor J.B. Pritzker and Mayor Lori Lightfoot banned all public and private gatherings of more than 1,000 people, and urged that gatherings of more than 250 people be suspended for a minimum of 30 days. Following these recommendations, and in the interest of public health, the Harris Theater has canceled all planned events and performances through April 12, 2020. 

As a result Giordano Dance Chicago’s April 3 + 4 performances of Be Bold, See Bold have been canceled. Please continue reading for a note from Giordano Dance Chicago.
