Dance for winter 2023: Rarely seen tours and some big swings from Chicago companies
Jan 04, 2023 by Lauren Warnecke
“Ambitious remounts and big, milestone concerts are on tap this winter for Chicago dance, with a handful of touring groups rarely seen within city limits. Here are the most anticipated dance events taking place early in 2023.
Step Afrika!: This Washington, D.C., company has honed a theatrical style of stepping — a genre born in the fraternities and sororities of historically Black colleges and universities. Making their Auditorium Theatre debut, Step Afrika! blends stepping with its Indigenous roots across the Atlantic, culling this uniquely American form through decades long collaboration with artists in Johannesburg, South Africa. Jan. 14 at the Auditorium Theatre, 50 E. Ida B. Wells Drive; tickets $37-$83 at 312-341-2300 and auditoriumtheatre.org”
