Vibrant and innovative, DanceWorks Chicago (DWC) is proud to share a diverse repertory featuring who is new and what is next in contemporary dance as well as showcase exciting work from established choreographers. Like a quality restaurant, DWC searches for and uses the best ingredients available, rotating the menu each season. Offerings range from locally-sourced choreographers mixed in with dancemakers from across the world. DWC is dedicated to creating an environment conducive to nurturing experiences of significance for everyone from artist to audience.
Nationally, DanceWorks Chicago has conducted master classes, residencies, meet the artist conversations, and programs for families, as well as full evening performances to enthusiastic audiences.
Locally, the company enjoys an on-going relationship with the Harris Theater for Music and Dance, and this season will build on the success of the lunchtime series Eat to the Beat, launched through a DWC/Harris pilot effort, with the debut of a new rush hour program.
To start out SEASON 7, DWC has been honored with an invitation to join a select roster of Chicago's most high profile dance companies appearing in Dance for Life, an annual celebration of dance and a benefit to support AIDS-related causes.
