@ Newberry Library

60 W Walton St, Chicago, IL 60610

Opening Saturday, July 6th, at 2PM

On view through Saturday, July 6th

Join us for a guided tour of our current exhibition, “The Legacy of Chicago Dance.”

“The Legacy of Chicago Dance” waltzes through more than 100 years of dance in the city, showing how different styles and traditions have not only co-existed but converged in unexpected and creative ways.

Drawing on the Newberry Library’s vast dance archives, the exhibit covers a wide range of dancers, studios, and styles through an array of materials, including rare archival videos, photos, costumes, and pointe shoes worn by powerhouse ballerinas like Anna Pavlova.

The exhibit is free to visit and runs from April 27 through July 6.
