River North Dance Chicago might be categorized as one of Chicago’s “midsize” dance companies, but there is nothing small about the bravura skill of its dancers or the wide range of its repertoire.

The company’s fall engagement at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance (a benefit on Nov. 14, a family program on Nov. 15 and two full concerts on Nov. 16 and 17), will feature two world premieres (one by Chicago’s Kevin Iega Jeff, another by Oregon-based Ashley Roland); a company premiere (a solo set to “The Worst Pies in London” from Stephen Sondheim’s “Sweeney Todd); a hard-driving work of urban angst by Daniel Ezralow; and “Eva,” artistic director Frank Chaves’ beautiful piece set to the song stylings of Eva Cassidy, a great talent who died all too young.
