Ok, I admit this is a picture of a much younger me. I always loved dance and have spent many years training and practicing contemporary dance. I was lucky enough to be part of theater productions at the University of Chicago.
So this brings me to my second love…..Chicago. Chicago offers many festivals and events. It is common to find something to do on a summer evening whether it be on Lake Shore Drive or in Lincoln Park.
One of the best festivals was the Chicago Dancing Festival. For ten years the festival was a free event and showcased some of the best dancers in the world.
This blog is to look back at the festival and to explore the world of dance in Chicago. I am now in my forties and would not want to live anywhere else in the world. I might not be in perfect shape, but I still love to dance and look for any event that has good music and a dance floor.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
