On August 18th the Chicago dance community will come together at the Auditorium Theatre to support one another and raise money for HIV/AIDS AIDS care, education, and prevention–and for The Dancers’ Fund.
Dance For Life Chicago is a dance performance that first came to the stage at Chicago’s Organic Theater. Since its founding in 1992 it has sold out every single year. To date, close to $4 million dollars has been raised for the fight against HIV/AIDS.
The organization has partnered with some of Chicago’s best companies, including Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, The Joffrey Ballet, River North Dance Chicago and Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago. Those who attend the performance are in for a lovely evening of dance at one of the best venues in the city. In addition, this year’s show will feature two World Premiere performances choreographed by Chicago’s own Randy Duncan and Harrison McEldowney.
Before the curtain rises, those who purchase tickets for the Gala Reception will get to enjoy conversation and complimentary Absolut martinis in the Hilton Chicago Grand Ballroom. You can purchase tickets for the Gala and/or the August 18th performance here.
Those hoping to learn more about this event can watch Dance for Life: The Documentary airing Tuesday, August, 14th at 10 p.m. on Chicago’s public television station, WTTW 11.
