Event Type
Event Description

Lights! Camera! Action! Crash gets ready for its close-up as we dedicate this summer blockbuster to your favorite films and characters. As a special bonus, bring your cameras and sketchbooks and feel free to document and share the competition however you see fit cause it's the annual "bootleg battle!"

Always featuring your favorite emcee, Mr. Mattrick Swayze, the big question remains WHAT in the world will new champion, Mary Tarpley, come up with this time?!

Declared “physically fearless” by the Chicago Sun-Times and picked as one of the two best companies to debut in the last decade by NewCity, Chicago Dance Crash continues to raise the bar in bringing dance to the people. CDC’s longest running production, The Keeper of The Floor Championship (KTF), matches competitive dance with the energy of late-night theatre and the spectacle of sports entertainment, featuring some of the city’s most accomplished dancers assembled for battle on the Maynestage floor. Combining the drive of competition with the energy of a rock concert, Chicago's ONLY full-scale, long-running dance competition welcomes all comers, from breakdancers and ballerinas to belly dancers.
