Chicago Summer Dance 2011
The Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs is excited to once again present Chicago Summer Dance this summer as the Spirit of Music Garden in Grant Park blossoms into an urban dance space each Thursday through Sunday from July 7, 2011 to September 18, 2011.
Last year over 100,000 people enjoyed the Chicago SummerDance festival, making it the largest festival of its kind in the United States.
Each night of the eleven-week festival offers an introductory one-hour dance lesson by professional instructors followed by two hours of music and dancing on a 4,600 square-foot, open-air dance floor designed by artist Dan Peterman out of 100% recycled materials. The dance floor is located in the Spirit of Music Garden in Grant Park, at 601 S. Michigan Avenue. Chicago SummerDance events occur every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening, from 6 to 9:30 pm and on each Sunday afternoon from 4 to 7 pm, weather permitting.
