Seattle native joins Hubbard Street Dance Chicago

Seattle-born Quinn Wharton has joined the prestigious Hubbard Street Dance Chicago company, Hubbard Street announced today. Wharton, who attended Pacific Northwest Ballet School and Ewajo Dance Center in Seattle, will perform in “One Thousand Pieces,” a world premiere work that kicks off Hubbard’s 35th-anniversary season next month. He’s also a photographer and passionate hip-hop dancer; in a 2011 online essay, he wrote that “Having a strong base in both (ballet and rap) allows a dancer to move over any terrain in the dance world with ease.” His other training was at North Carolina School of the Arts, Houston Ballet Academy and San Francisco Ballet School, and he joined SFB in 2005.
