Dance for Life
August 18, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Dance for Life Chicago, which mobilizes Chicago’s dance community by raising funds through dance, presents its annual benefit performance, which is preceded by a gala reception at the Hilton Chicago. Joining the Partner Dance Companies that perform each year — Giordano Dance Chicago, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and The Joffrey Ballet — are Hanna Brictson and Dancers, Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre, Chicago Dance Crash, and Nomi Dance Company. The concert also includes a work choreographed by Randy Duncan.
Dance for Life supports organizations and dance professionals facing critical health issues. Proceeds from Dance for Life benefit The Dancers’ Fund, which was established in response to the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the dance community, and the AIDS Foundation of Chicago. The Dancers’ Fund now offers assistance in, but is not limited to, health matters, housing, utilities, insurance, medication, and travel. As a unifier of Chicago’s dance community, Dance for Life supports a thriving dance community by focusing on its health and well-being through The Dancers’ Fund.
