I know what you’ve been feeling as you walk through the streets of Chicago this week. You just want to dance in the sunlight and pretend your Gene Kelly on the street. Well get some inspiration during Chicago Dance Month.
Over ten dance companies and organizations will feature over 50 great dance workshops, performances, and events that occur in Chicago. This year the month will continue with the “Open Doors, Open Spaces” theme. Events marked Open Doors are performances starring the city’s best dance companies in buildings and landmarks throughout the Loop. Those marked Open Spaces occur every Friday during the month at “Thank God It’s Dance Friday” where some of the dance companies will hold performances at Pritzker Park. The best thing is that all Open Doors and Open Spaces events are free. Below are the remaining Open Doors and Open Spaces events you don’t want to miss:
April 16, OPEN DOORS: Chicago’s Landmark Building Performances at Modern Classics Furniture
