Chicago SummerDance, the largest annual outdoor live music and dancing series in the United States, will move to Buckingham Fountain Plaza during Taste of Chicago, each day of the festival from 5:30 to 8:30pm. The series typically offers a free, introductory one-hour dance lesson by professional instructors followed by live music and dancing. The House Music night on July 13 will go right into the DJ set, without the dance instruction.
