It's that time of year again--the Chicago Dancing Festival! Join us at the 8th annual Chicago Dancing Festival FREE at Pritzker Pavilion! This has become an annual tradition, so don't miss out on this FREE night of dance with at least 7 companies from all over the country (about half Chicago) including Joffrey Ballet, Hubbard Street, and the Washington Ballet. This event usually gets over 100 people, joining thousands of others in the audience. We will be sitting on the lawn, so bring a picnic and something to sit on. Performance will be projected on a large screen the lawn, so we will be able to see everything. Here is the link:
Feel free to bring friends, family, acquaintances, random strangers--the more the merrier. Just make sure to RSVP with number of guests so I know how many people to expect. Please RSVP if you plan to attend and remove your RSVP if you sign up but can no longer attend.
Show starts at 7:30. Meet at the cow sculpture outside the Chicago Cultural Center, Washington Street side, 78 E. Washington St., at 6:00, we will depart for the pavilion at 6:15. This year I WILL NOT be taking phone calls because it is too difficult to explain where we are on the lawn, so please arrive at the Cultural Center by 6:15 if you want to join our group. Otherwise you are welcome to sit wherever you wish or look for us--we are usually toward the front of the lawn in the center.
If you are looking for a great picnic option, check out Brown's Chicken in Millennium Station, down the stairs next to the Cultural Center, Randolph St. side. It is in Armand's Pizza, so you can get pizza and chicken in the same place. If you pick it up on your way to the meetup, it should still be hot when you get to the pavilion. http://www.brownschicken.com/ Enjoy!
Hope to see you there!
