I'd be lying if I said my cubicle wasn't covered in heart stickers in anticipation of Valentine's Day. Seriously, it looks like an arts & crafts war zone.
So you can imagine my excitement over Chicago's dance events dedicated to loooove this weekend.
RNDC: River North Dance Chicago presents its Valentine's Weekend Engagement with two world premieres "Contact Me" by Mauro Astolfi (Artistic Director of Italy's Spellbound Dance Company...an Italian, piu romantico!) and "The Good Goodbyes" from RNDC Artistic Director Frank Chaves. I attended this program last year with my mom, and we loved it. The program runs this weekend, Feb 10-12 at Harris Theater.
Duets for My Valentine: Also this weekend, this program brings together a mashup of Chicago dancers and choreographers, making it a great alternative date night, or great night out with friends. Presented by the ever-awesome Chicago Dance Crash, the show is one night only, Saturday, February 11 at its new location this year the Athenaeum Theatre.
