An article telling a little bit more about Nan.

Imagine growing up with dance as a family business. That's what happened to Nan Giordano, who was "very little" forty years ago when her father, now a legendary teacher, started the school and unique concert dance company that came to be called Gus Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago. Performing more than ever with Nan at the helm, the company has gone in new directions while maintaining her dad's vision. [] "I grew up just in awe of my father," she says. "It was such a wonderful upbringing. We were always going to performances. We lived in Paris for three months. We went to Germany. And the dance company--I thought it was the coolest thing in the world."
Internationally known and respected, the troupe founded and has sponsored the Jazz Dance World Congress since 1990 and this spring was negotiating on performances in China, Italy, and Brazil
