"The Premiere Showcase for the dizzying array of companies, dancers and choreographers that are the core of the city's burgeouning dance scene." - Chicago Sun Times

A whole new line up of amazing artists, but the same excitement and variety of dance styles returns to Ramsey Auditorium as we bring you The Best of Dance Chicago, this year dedicated to the memory of long time Auditorium Committee volunteer and lover of the Dance Chicago Festival, Dr. Morris Binkley.

The Stars of Dance Chicago is an international touring group that consists of Chicago's most vibrant dancers, choreographers and dance masters selected by Artistic Director John Schmitz to represent Dance Chicago. This year's roster includes Culture Shock, Mexican Dance Ensemble, AMEBA Acrobatic and Aerial Dance, The Hit Factory, Grieger Dance Project, NoMi LaMad Dance, Full Effect Dance Theatre, Trinity Irish Dancers, Chicago Dance Crash, Ballroom Champions Brandon and Serena, Monernez Rezell, and Tre Dumas.

Schmitz states: "They perform a dizzying premiere showcase where ballet mingles with jazz, modern mixes into hip-hop and tap burst onto the scene in a brilliant kaleidoscope of dance. These choreographers aren't trying to reinvent the wheel - they've found new ways of making it roll. Whether they leave you speechless or screaming for more, these are the dances you will never forget. Toes tap, hips hop. Smooth moves on hard grooves. The Stars of Dance Chicago is about racing hearts, sweaty palms and unbridled passion. Who needs rhyme and reason when you've got the rhythm? This is new artistry in full Technicolor in a most exhilarating dance program."

Stay tuned for more specifics.
