This company, led by artistic directors Sherry Zunker Dow and Frank Chaves, is strictly committed to the idea of entertaining audiences. The style is jazz-based with liberal applications of funky dance-club movement. Critics have been quick to point out the MTV leanings of this slick company, but in recent years the choreography has grown up. These days, River North, which boasts some of the most athletic dancers in the city, features dances ranging from tango to classic to avant-garde. They sell out just about every house they play. Call early for tickets -- or get on the mailing list. Chicagoland performance venues include the Athenaeum Theatre, Harold D. McAninch Arts Center at College of DuPage, and Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills.
