Knock, knock. Remember us?

It is now December 17th and summer seems a distant memory amongst the puffy coats and slush, but don’t think we have forgotten about you.  We haven’t.  Not for a single second.  In fact each of you, seasoned fans, artists and newbies alike, are at the forefront of our minds.  Why?  Because Chicago Dancing Festival 2011 plans are already underway and as we head into the new year, I could not be more thrilled and honored to join this extraordinary organization.  My name is Evin Nicole Eubanks and I am the new Executive Director.

For our newbies, a brief history:

The Chicago Dancing Festival was founded in 2007 with a mission to present a wide variety of excellent dance and build dance audiences in Chicago.  On August 22, 2007, in association with our esteemed partners, the Museum of Contemporary Art and Millennium Park, City of Chicago, we presented a free one-night only performance at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park.  More than 8,500 people attended the inaugural event.  In 2008, we added a second performance, in 2009 a third and in 2010 a fourth.  Having successfully presented the highly acclaimed four night 2010 program to more than 12,000 audience members from across the country, the Chicago Dancing Festival is quickly defining itself as a leading destination for the very best in dance.

On behalf of all of us at the Chicago Dancing Festival, we wish you a joyous holiday season and a happy new year because before you know it, summer will be here and when it arrives there will be:



August 23 – 27, 2011
