Dance in Chicago, IL



The Arts




For lovers of dance, Chicago has several wonderful dance companies that perform regularly. My favorities include:

Joffrey Ballet: Having moved to Chicago from New York, the Joffrey is one of the leading cultural institutions in the city. It has several groups of performances throughout the year, now at the Civic Opera HouseĀ  They perform a combination of traditional as well as contemporary pieces, plus its Nutcracker Ballet performances are one of the highlights of the Christmas season in Chicago. 20 N. Wacker Dr.

Hubbard Street Dance: I love Hubbard Street and hope you are able to catch one of their great performances. They have a Spring Series, Fall Series and Winter Series which they perform at the Harris Theater at 205 E. Randolph, as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art at 220 E. Chicago Ave. I went to the a performance of the Winter Series in February, 2024 at the MCA and was very impressed with the quality.
