Event Description

Showcasing Chicago dancers in a night of music, dance and laughter, Dance for Life Chicago presents Dance Divas “Bright Lights, Big Cities," a party and performance Sunday, August 4 at 6 p.m. and Monday, August 5 at 7 and 9 p.m. at the Baton Show Lounge, the famed female impersonation nightclub at its new location, 4713 N. Broadway, Chicago. All proceeds benefit the Dancers’ Fund.

Under the artistic direction of choreographers Jeremy Plummer and Harrison McEldowney, this year Dance Divas goes on tour, from the Big Apple to Sin City and all the way to the City of Angels. "Bright Lights, Big Cities" is a glamorous night of “high heels and high camp” featuring Chicago’s leading professional male dancers impersonating the famous dancing women of stage and screen. During the evening, guests have the opportunity to bid on “Be a Diva” for an audience member to receive a complete “drag makeover” during the show. The winning and newly “glammed-up” Diva will be revealed on stage as a part of the show.

“Harrison and I look forward to this event every year, which is fun and entertaining and brings together the entire Chicago dance community for a great cause, the Dancers’ Fund,” said Plummer. “We showcase dancers and companies from all over Chicago for a unique night of show-stopping glitz and glamour!”
