Dance in the Parks’ mission is to bring free, professional dance performances to new audiences in the most accessible venues in Chicago—neighborhood parks. We hope to expose audiences unfamiliar with dance to the art form as well as to local performers and choreographers in a relaxed, casual atmosphere in order to build future relationships with the greater Chicago dance community.
Since 2009, Dance in the Parks has partnered with the Chicago Park District and the mayor's Night Out in the Parks' initiative to bring professional dance concerts to Chicago's neighborhood parks. In our 13 seasons, we have performed in 54 parks in 43 neighborhoods, hired 156 dance artists, and performed 102 dance pieces for over 13,000 audience members.
And we're ready for SEASON 14!
We hope you'll join us at a park this summer
