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 Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), four artists take up residency in the studio on each Friday in June. Performances will take place at the Chicago Cultural Center Dance Studio, 78 E. Washington St., each Friday from June 9 - 30, from 12 - 1 p.m. Visitors may see a rehearsal in progress, ask questions or enjoy a brief look into the creative process of artists at work. This is a casual, drop-in program and attendees should feel free to bring their lunch and spend the hour with the artists.
See Chicago Dance is a nonprofit service organization with the mission to advocate for the dance field and strengthen a diverse range of dance organizations and artists through services and programs that build and engage audiences. Its vision is to fearlessly inspire an ever-growing inclusive community to share in and spread the power of dance in Chicago.
Featured Artists include:
June 9: Such Creatures
June 16: Helen Lee/Momentum Sensorium
June 23: Shalaka Kulkarni
June 30: Jamila Kinney.
