To a lot of people, Chicago is one of the greatest city's in America.  With so much to do, things to see, and people to meet, how could you not love it?  What most people don't know or aren't aware of, is that Chicago has some of the best dance shows, programs, and classes out there.  It is home to hidden dance gems throughout the city.  While actually taking the stage and dancing might not be for everyone, there's a dance for everyone.  Let's dance, Chicago!

There's definitely not a lack of dance programs in the city for you to choose from.  While there are a plethura of well-known dance companies, there are some smaller ones that are just as beneficial to dancers and non-dancers.  Some companies offer you the opportunity to perform in front of live audiences, while some are meant for the sole purpose of gaining more knowledge and experience with a particular genre of dance.  Then there are those classes that you go into to move for the whole purpose of moving.  If you love to dance, you need to check out one of Chicago's many dance classes.  Everyone should dance, Chicago!

If you'd rather watch someone else dance, Chicago has many professional and student based dance companies that put on performances throughout the year.  Whether you're interested in ballet, hip hop, jazz, latin, or ballroom there's always something for you to go see.  Some of the Chicago favorites are The Nutcracker Ballet performed by both professional and student groups, spontaneous street Hip Hop performances, or Salsa nightclubs where the professionals show off their moves.  You are always filled with dance, Chicago!

On top of the fact that Chicago has a multitude of dance programs to choose from...the dance festivals are unlimited here.  Summer brings all sorts of dance festivals to the city: Latin, Jazz, Hip Hop, etc.  If you want to be outside listening to great music and dancing, summer in Chicago is where it's at.  You make it hard not to dance, Chicago!

Whether you want to be in the spotlight or watching from your chair, there's so much dance in Chicago that there's something for everyone.  It's just about going out and finding what speaks to you.  Dance is something that makes most people happy and that most people can do or enjoy on a certain level, so if it's out there then you should become a part of it.  So...what are you waiting for??  Let's dance, Chicago!
