Elevate Chicago Dance marks the culmination of a multi-year Regional Dance Development Initiative produced by Chicago Dancemakers Forum and New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA). It is made possible with funding from Reva and David Logan Foundation, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, Chicago Park District/Night Out in the Parks, Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, PERT Foundation, and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation through NEFA’s National Dance Project.
This event at South Shore Cultural Center is presented as part of the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks series, supported by Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Arts programming in neighborhoods across the city advances the goals of the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Cultural Plan. Now in its fifth year, the 2017 Night Out in the Parks series will host over 1,200 cultural events and programs at more than 250 neighborhood parks throughout the city, making community parks a safe haven and hubs of activity. Projects will vary from traditional performances and concerts, to movies, peace rallies, community workshops, nature based programs, dance pieces, festivals, and more. The Chicago Park District has partnered with more than 100 arts and community organizations to expand and produce this successful initiative.
