If you don’t think dancers are athletes, check out a performance by Hubbard Street (; [tel] 312/850-9744), and then come talk to me. The muscular performances, which are as diverse as they come, make you feel alive, and even the rhythmless get the wiggles. Every season, this Chicago favorite outdoes itself in originality, putting on shows for all ages. Particularly clever recent productions have included everything from a collaboration with Second City to a performance inspired by Marc Chagall’s American Windows.
