Crosswalk Dances

Event Type
Event Description

Consider your commute with a fresh perspective; “Crosswalk Dances” enliven and connect the six corners of the Lincoln/Southport/Wellington junction. Contemporary dancers wearing individual speakers transform the six-corner intersection into a chorus as they move in tandem with pedestrians, dancing at each corner and through the countdown crosswalks.

Each performance will last approximately 25 minutes. There are a variety of outdoor seating options at the site. The closest CTA access includes buses #9, #76, #77, and the Wellington Brown Line stop. Paid parking is available on the street or in the Athenaeum Theatre lot.


Presented with support from The Chicago Park District, The Athenaeum Theatre, and the Illinois Arts Council Agency. Major support for this project comes from Lakeview Special Service Area 27.
