Hubbard Street to honor Mikhail Baryshnikov
Mikhail Baryshnikov will be the guest of honor at Hubbard Street Dance Chicago's 2014 Spotlight Ball, the company announced today. The legendary dance artist will accept Hubbard Street's Spotlight Award at the May 19 gala at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park.
"I look at Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s history and truly appreciate its goals and mission," Baryshnikov said in a statement. "The company has roots in classic forms and techniques, but is always evolving, always looking for something new in dance." Now in its 36th season, Hubbard Street's next Chicago performance will be a reprise of Alejandro Cerrudo's One Thousand Pieces, December 12–15 at the Harris Theater.
