Are you an avid reader of See Chicago Dance? Are you a dancer or watcher? Maybe you're someone with an interesting perspective on the practice, lifestyle and enjoyment of dance in Chicago and beyond? You could be the next author published on See Chicago Dance!

Our Readers Write is a See Chicago Dance  series in which we turn the keyboard over to you to share your thoughts on anything related to dance in Chicago. Previously, readers have shared personal journeys in dance, interesting stories about hallmark figures in Chicago dance and other essays and stories that span the gamut of what dance is about.

Throughout Fall, 2020, we are particularly interested in how dance artists and arts organizations are responding to COVID-19 and engaging with their communities.

If you have a story to share, email editor@seechicagodance.
