Elevate Chicago Dance 2018 is a day of performances plus installations, workshops and discussions by 45 Chicago dancemakers. The broadly defined theme of the day explores intersections between Dance, Space, Race, and Place. The projects will activate all the floors and multiple public areas of the landmark Chicago Cultural Center, including the Claudia Cassidy Theater, GAR Hall, the Dance Studio, and Preston Bradley Hall.
Elevate Chicago Dance 2018 is presented in partnership with the City of Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) with additional support from the Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation and many generous individuals.
