Dance for Life Chicago, an annual benefit concert for HIV/AIDS and other critical health issues, celebrates its 25th anniversary at Roosevelt University’s Auditorium Theatre on August 20. Chicago dance companies, including Joffrey Ballet, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and Giordano Dance Chicago, will perform.
“The really beautiful thing about Dance for Life is that it draws the whole Chicago dance community together,” says Diane Rawlinson, dance teacher at Wheeling High School who has co-directed the “Next Generation” student-produced concert for 22 years. “It really is something to witness.”
Dance for Life has presented 32 Chicago dance companies during the past 24 years.
