Event Description

Join See Chicago Dance as we host our 2019 Day of Dancer Health during Chicago Dance Month!

Sign-up for free health screenings and a Health Fair Expo for dance industry professionals. This all-day event is based on a model created by Dance/USA that has taken place in six other U.S. cities, and now we bring it to Chicago. In partnership with an array of health care professionals and wellness organizations, we will provide 50 dance artists with physical and mental health screenings, nutritional assessments, and local referrals completely free of charge. The Health Care Expo is open to the public. Learn more about all workshops offered HERE.


Space is limited. RSVP's are required for Health Screenings, Workshops, and Complimentary Lunch. Registration is NOT required for the Health Expo.
