versatile virtuosos whose dynamic repertory incorporates jazz, modern

dance, and classical ballet. Hubbard Street returns to New Jersey on

Tuesday, February 10, for a concert program at New Brunswick’s State


Founded in 1977 by Lou Conte, HSDC has earned a reputation as one of

the nation’s most innovative and exciting dance troupes. Now

celebrating its 25th anniversary under the leadership of artistic

director (and Lawrenceville native) Jim Vincent, the company

performs its contemporary repertory brilliantly. This eclectic

repertory includes works by founder Lou Conte, Daniel Ezralow, Trey

McIntyre, and Jim Vincent; and international choreographers

Christopher Bruce, Marguerite Donlon, Nacho Duato, Jiri Kylian, and

Ohad Naharin.

Jim Vincent joined HSDC in August 2000 following an extensive career

in Europe as a dancer, teacher, ballet master, and choreographer.

Raised in Lawrenceville, he began his dance training at the age of

five and performed with New Jersey’s Mercer, Burlington, and Princeton

Ballet. He also studied under Mary and Phyllis Papa, current directors

of Atlantic City Ballet. Vincent recently choreographed

"Counter/part," his first work created for HSDC.
