A new citywide, at-home version of the summertime tradition invites Chicagoans to plan smaller, socially-distant dance parties in their homes and backyards, on front porches and elsewhere with up to 50 people indoors and 100 people outdoors — and connect via the broadcast or social media. Presented by DCASE with the Chicago Park District, the reimagined series is filmed in Millennium Park and at Chicago Park district locations, featuring skyline views and iconic imagery that residents have been missing.

Following the traditional SummerDance model, each program will start with a 30-minute dance lesson, followed by 60 minutes of music performed by local artists. Dance and music styles include House, salsa, swing, Bollywood and more.

All programs can be viewed at youtube.com/ChicagoDCASE. The July 8, 15, 22 & 29 programs will be broadcast on WTTW Prime (11.2).
