JOIN US FOR CHICAGO’S BIGGEST DANCE NIGHT OF THE YEAR!

Dance for Life Chicago is the annual benefit performance that showcases the city’s unique diversity of talent, dance traditions, and styles. One night a year, the talented and renowned professional dancers of Chicago come together to share the same stage at the historic Auditorium Theatre—all for a good cause.

Welcoming those looking for either an elegant night downtown or just a relaxed and fun performance, Dance for Life Chicago has presented classic, world premiere, and even improvised dance works in ballet, contemporary, hip hop, jazz, and tap over the last 27 years.

Since 1991, Dance for Life has united the Chicago dance community and its fans to support local dance community professionals affected by critical health issues. The money raised through the performance goes directly to the Dancer’s Fund. Created by Chicago Dancer’s United in response to the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the dance community, the Dancer’s Fund fund has broadened to include other health and living needs.

We invite you to come celebrate and toast Chicago’s incredible range of dance and choreographic talent. Find up-to-date details on this year’s event by following us on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter: #DanceForLifeChicago

“Pick up your ticket, grab a drink, and we’ll see you on August 18th!
