chuthis. Moves with Nan Giordano—Dance Connection

We held a chuthis. Moves at Dance Connection in Scottsdale, Arizona this month. Peter Chu was joined by very special guest Nan Giordano to teach at this event! Nan, the Artistic Director of Giordano Dance Chicago, taught the students Giordano Technique, focused on the fundamentals of American Jazz Dance, while Peter shared chuthis. Ideas & Repertoire with the dancers. It was an informative two days filled with hard work and passion—everyone walked away with a feeling of exhilaration.  In addition to all that Nan brought to chuthis. Moves, she also gave a scholarship to the Giordano Dance Chicago Summer Intensive. Congratulations to Cyrie Lin Topete (pictured below), the dancer who earned this prestigious award!

In addition to our regular chuthis. Moves weekend, we also held a chuthis. Mini Moves Workshop at Dance Connection! Peter connected with the young artists of DC/AZ, sharing chuthis. Ideas  & Repertoire with them. It is always refreshing and inspiring to see the dedication and progression of this age group.  Thank you to Lori Johnson & Lisa Waddell for hosting us, and a huge thank you to Nan Giordano for sharing your wisdom and expertise. 

"What an amazing experience to see first hand the monumental impact that Peter & chuthis. have had on the Dance Connection in Scottsdale, AZ. The students possess an impressive  maturity & commitment to new experiences.  It was quite refreshing to see young dancers adhere to different ways of learning & thinking especially in our world of competition. Getting back to foundation & fundamentals is essential, I thank Peter for having me as a guest to help inspire and educate our next generation of dancers, it was truly my pleasure. I also commend Lori Johnson & Lisa Waddell for integrating such a vibrant atmosphere for their students, especially loved the inspirational rocks that move around the studios, and was very pleased to find one in my bag. THANK YOU!!!" — Nan Giordano

"Hosting chuthis. Moves at Dance Connection is something we look forward to every year. Being able to offer my students the outstanding faculty chuthis. Moves provides is something I value above all else. We are so grateful for these opportunities that allow our students and instructors to grow and keep learning." — Lori Johnson

Jenni Berthelot, Nan Giordano & Peter Chu

Beginnings with Nan Giordano

Peter's relationship with Giordano Dance Chicago began in 2016, when he was commissioned  by Artistic Director Nan Giordano to create a new work on the company. Assisted by chuthis. company member Jenni Berthelot, Peter spent two weeks in Chicago creating Divided Against for GDC's 2016/17 Season. Peter & Jenni loved working with the entire company, and were so inspired by Nan's deep roots in American Jazz Dance. They both knew that this relationship held enormous potential for future artistic connection & collaboration. Check out the reel for Peter's creation on Giordano Dance Chicago below!
