Chicago Loop Alliance partnered with Audience Architects, the official organizers of Chicago Dance Month, to bring these unique performances to Pritzker Park. From March 28 to May 3, dance performances, classes, educational opportunities, open rehearsals, and events will be available throughout Chicago for the third annual Chicago Dance Month.



This year’s theme, “Open Doors, Open Spaces” is what inspired the free performances. Chicagoans will also have the opportunity to experience free dance performance at many unique downtown locations throughout the Loop ranging from hotels to furniture stores to churches.
