Dance Bytes

Event Type
Event Description


DanceWorks Chicago's Dance Bytes blends a dynamic dance presentation with informative behind-the-scenes insights. Held at times in a studio and at times in a theater, Dance Bytes is an opportunity to connect with dance and dancers through an intimate look into the artistic journey. The creation of new work as well as the dances themselves are vehicles for DWC dancers and audiences to investigate a wide range of dance techniques, movement styles, and artistic approaches.

DanceWorks Chicago piloted the DanceMoves Choreography Competition in our 2012 -2013 season to great enthusiasm. DWC is perfectly positioned to build on this successful debut and provide a layer of opportunity for Chicago-based choreographers as we continue our on-going commitment to encourage new work viaDance Chance. Four dance makers have been selected to create a work inspired by the city of Chicago. 

We are excited to continue to develop ways for local choreographers to shine and are proud to contribute to the city's cultural landscape by encouraging creativity and promoting excellence.
