Our spring intensives at Senn High School began last week. This semester we are placing a Latin Fusion piece on the students using material from a wonderful workshop provided to us by Christopher Courtney of Culture Shock Chicago and movements we learned at the Canada Salsa Congress last year. Our first day long series of workshops was fun and we are looking forward to the twice a week intensives that will last over the next month.
The members of IDC University are non-stop as usual. It seems they will do about 5-6 performances this semester. They are getting requested so often we can't even formally finish our new piece! When that is piece is done though, we know they'll be amazing!
If you appreciate this kind of community work and want to show your support, please come out for a night of performances, food, and fun at the Inspiración First Annual Gala on April 25th.
We are excited to announce the first annual Inspiración Gala coming up April 25th at the Palm Court on Loyola University's Lake Shore Campus. Since officially becoming a non-profit in April of 2013 Inspiración Dance Chicago's community activities have become increasingly vibrant with thriving youth programs at Nicholas Senn High School and Loyola University and a growing adult performance program. We would like to celebrate those accomplishments and build hope for more in the coming year with an evening of fun that will include food, beverages, performances, a silent auction, and of course, lots of dancing.
