The Dance for Life benefit at the
Co-chairs were Patti Eylar, Kevin McGirr and Joe Schroeder. Producer/founder Keith Elliot started the event off with a bang....dancers everywhere performing multiple art forms--they were even dancing hanging onto fabric from the ceiling--a very joyous opening number with something for everyone that brought the crowd to their feet. There was a tribute to Michael Jackson performed by local favorite Enrico Hampton.
You better plan now on attending this wonderful event which will be back in August 2010. It always sells out early and has grown to become the largest performance based AIDS fundraising event in the Midwest benefitting the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Chicago House, AIDS Care, Center on Halsted and also individual members of the dance community who are in need.
