"'Grusin Suite' is quintessential Chaves, capturing his sophisticated and elegant approach to rhythm and musicality inside a work that is sly, funny, and exceptionally well-crafted."
"'It was amazing that this work looks as fresh and vibrant in 2017 as it did in 1993,' says Giordano. 'Even thought Frank is now in a wheelchair, he was gliding and weaving in and around and through the performers wiwith grace. Watching him reconstruct, teach rehearse, and polish the dancers of Giordano Dance Chicago has been both magical and inspiring'"
