See Chicago Dance, the dance industry's nonprofit service organization, is proud to announce that its popular annual offering, Chicago Dance Month, returns this June. Now in its eleventh year, Chicago Dance Month provides more than 60 performance opportunities for artists and companies to celebrate the myriad talents that make Chicago’s dance scene so strong.
In partnership with the Chicago Park District and Night Out in the Park, On the Move is a roaming, episodic, curated series of site-specific dance and movement performances. Performances will take place at Promontory Point, 5491 S. DuSable Lake Shore Dr., Tuesday June 13 and June 27, from 4:30 - 6 p.m. Viewers wind their way through and around spaces at Promontory Point Park, with a map, and discover hidden pockets of surprising, engaging performances by some of Chicago's most vibrant dance companies and performers. In this beautiful public outdoor setting, audiences are able to learn about and experience a vast array of dance genres.
