Event Description

Dance For Life: United As One is a week-long celebration featuring works archived from Dance for Life performances during the past 29 years, and a world premiere finale.

Beginning Monday, August 10, we will post videos of past DFL performances, which will remain available throughout the week. Dance supporters and enthusiasts who donate $20 or more will receive emails with links promoting different videos daily, along with background on the works themselves.

The culminating virtual celebration on Saturday, August 15—the original date for the 29th anniversary of DFL scheduled at the Auditorium Theatre—will be a festive evening featuring a World Premiere choreographed by Hanna Brictson in response to COVID-19 with dancers from throughout the Chicago area, along with a DFL highlights reel, celebrity MCs, remarks from sponsors, information about resources available through The Dancers’ Fund, news about the 30th Anniversary DFL in 2021, and more. Donors of $20 or more will receive a special link to “attend” this finale event.

Please consider becoming a supporter as we celebrate Dance For Life: United As One!
