River North Dance Chicago Company (RNDCC) is one of Chicago’s leading dance companies specializing in preserving jazz-based contemporary dance. Founded in 1989 by four visionary dancers/choreographers, the company has received critical acclaim nationally and internationally.

The Chicago-based company produces, promotes and presents dance; makes vital connections between dancers and audiences; creates partnerships and collaborations; assists in the professional development of dancers, choreographers and dance professionals; participates in cultural programming; and advocates dance and dance education.
