Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

There is enough wonderful dance happening in Chicago to keep you on your toes almost every night throughout the month of March. Local and touring companies from out of town grace stages small and large throughout the city. The town is fairly bursting with new, creative collaborations between choreographers, dancers, musicians, filmmakers, videographers, actors, poets and more.

The Joffrey Ballet

February is jam-packed with a roster of exciting and varied dance events, with the blurring of genre lines as modern meets tradition. The Shen Yun Show highlights ancient Chinese tradition at the Harris Theater, while challenging programming from The Joffrey Ballet's "Game Changers" sends us to the cutting edge in contemporary ballet at the Auditorium Theatre. Kick the winter blahs, get out of the house, and See Chicago Dance!
