Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, the contemporary dance troupe once lauded by Fred Astaire, glides into Jacksonville at 7:30 p.m. Thursday for a one-night-only performance at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are $21.50 to $39.50. Call (904) 632-3373.

Before that, though, the company's artistic director, Jim Vincent, will make a pit stop at the Arts Triumphant Dance Conservatory, where he will teach a master class from 8-10 a.m. Wednesday.

Vincent heads Hubbard's main company of 20 culturally diverse dancers who perform jazz, modern ballet and dance theater for more than 100,000 people annually, worldwide. Its repertoire has included works by such respected choreographers as Nacho Duato and Twyla Tharp, along with new creations by emerging choreographers.

Vincent's visit is the icing on the farewell cake for Arts Triumphant, which will move out of Jacksonville next month.
