Hubbard Street 2 (HS2), under the leadership of Artistic Director Julie Nakagawa Bˆttcher, is a vibrant company of six dancers performing a repertoire of works by some of the nation’s most promising young choreographers. HS2 reaches more than 35,000 people annually through performances in schools, community centers, and theatres. Since its inception in 1997, the company has become a respected training ground for young, professional dancers and choreographers; a major component of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s Education and Community Programs; a resource for new dancers for HSDC’s main company; and a company performing a diverse and engaging repertory nationally and internationally.

In its near decade of existence, HS2 has been honored with invitations to perform at such prestigious venues as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Joyce Soho and North Carolina School of the Arts. The company’s first international appearance, in Johannesburg, South Africa, has been followed by multiple appearances in Germany as well as performances in Luxembourg and Switzerland.
