As part of the City of Chicago’s Year of Chicago Dance, the Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) present the Chicago Black Dance Legacy Project in Reclamation: The Spirit of Black Dance in Chicago. This FREE (RSVP requested but not required) performance will occur on Saturday, August 27, 2022 at 6:30pm at Millennium Park. It will begin with a DJ set, followed by a dance concert featuring an electrifying group of companies representing varied traditions. This rejuvenating dance concert celebrates the spirit of Black dance, and its profound ability to lift the spirits of those who encounter it. The companies performing include Ayodele Drum and Dance, Chicago Multicultural Dance Center’s Hiplet Ballerinas, Deeply Rooted Dance Theater, Forward Momentum Chicago, Joel Hall Dancers & Center, Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago, Najwa Dance Corps, and Red Clay Dance Company—each of which is a member of the Chicago Black Dance Legacy Project.
