After a successful show last Satuday night, Luna Negra Dance Theater announced it will be on an extended hiatus, but is working toward building a sustainable future. Here’s to a speedy resolution and best wishes to the artistic staff and dancers. Don’t go anywhere…Chicago loves you!

Here is the official statement from the company:

“Luna Negra Dance Theater recently brought on a new Executive Director who has worked closely with the Board of Directors and staff to assess the company’s artistic and administrative operations. To ensure the long-term health of the dancers (several of whom are currently out on injury) and allow for sound fiscal growth in the company’s 2013-2014, 15th anniversary season beginning in the fall, Luna Negra has extended the dancers’ already scheduled hiatus and has reduced hours for administrative staff. The Board of Directors and key staff will continue to conduct day-to-day operations and assure the continued artistic and programmatic success of Luna Negra Dance Theater.”
