Today's side deal sends ears' hearts fluttering at the opening of the River North Chicago Dance Company's Valentine's Weekend Engagement at the Harris Theater on February 12 and 13 at 8 p.m. For $20, you get orchestra-level seats in rows Y–DD, a $30–$40 value. Check out RNCDC's repertoire of dances, scientifically designed to make your significant other love you more and subsequently start helping more with the chores.

The jazz-based contemporary dance company's talented dancers are technically skilled, passionate artists. Dancers interpret the music and story through their entire bodies—their dramatic, colorful costumes enhance the dancers’ movements, and lighting works with the carefully plotted floor pattern and exuberant music to complete the onslaught of sensory storytelling. The whole package will invigorate your imagination and have you busting out ebullient moves all week.

Each brilliant choreographer lays the groundwork for a sensational show. During the Valentine's Engagement, Robert Battle (founder of New York's Battleworks Dance Company) returns to Chicago to follow 2008's exhilarating Train with a world premiere Three, and Ella, which celebrates the scat singing of Ella Fitzgerald. Lauri Stallings, meanwhile, will premiere her new, cutting-edge piece, Suppose. Breakout premieres from River North's fall engagements, Evolution of a Dream and Forbidden Boundaries, will also return to the stage and round out the celebrated dance company's 20th season. It's the perfect Valentine's Day date with your sweetie, bestie, or reluctant retail worker, and an experience sure to imbue you with the subtle hint of sophistication that comes with appreciating the art of dance.

Reviews

The River North Chicago Dance Company was recently featured in SeeChicagoDance.com and the Chicago Tribune. Here's what the critics are saying:

  • Monique Haley choreographed the entry by River North Chicago Dance Company-and this relative newcomer shows promise. Her "Uhuru," set to lively percussive music by Akoyo Afrobeat, is so hurried it makes you want to laugh; it registers as upbeat but without the least straining or pretension. Rat-a-tat sassy moves-twitchy hips, uh-huh chest motions, macho strutting with arms flying-come across as sexy but don't take themselves too seriously, while a male solo near the end is seriously sensual. And ends in the blink of an eye. Darn. – Laura Molzahn, SeeChicagoDance.com
  • Meanwhile, Tuesday offered a look at five current choreographers – important dancemakers of the present and the future. Two of the better offerings came courtesy of our own Joffrey Ballet (Edwaard Liang’s “Age of Innocence”) and River North Chicago Dance Company (Robert Battle’s “Train”). – Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune
