STATESBORO — One of the country’s most exciting dance companies is coming to the Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern University.

Hubbard Street 2 will perform at the PAC on Feb. 2 at 7:30 p.m.

Based in Chicago, Hubbard Street 2 is a company of dancers between the ages of 17 and 25 who perform a repertoire of work by many of the nation’s most promising choreographers.

With a desire to expose its audience to a wide variety of dance techniques, movement styles and artistic approaches, Hubbard Street 2 strives to perform an eclectic body of work, with an emphasis on new creation.

Tickets for Hubbard Street 2 are $30 per person for the general public. Georgia Southern faculty, staff and students will receive a $5 discount for each ticket.

In addition, if any tickets are available 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the performance, any Georgia Southern student with a valid University I.D. can purchase one ticket for $10.

Hubbard Street 2 was founded in 1997 as part of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, which has been a most respected force in contemporary dance for three decades.

Consisting of six full company members and two apprentices, Hubbard Street 2 reaches more than 35,000 each year through performances in schools, community centers and theaters.

In the process, it has emerged as a respected training ground for professional dancers and choreographers.

The PAC is located on the Georgia Southern campus at the corner of Chandler Road and Plant Drive. The box office is open every Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The box office is also open one hour prior to the start of each performance.
