Event Description


We're excited to host two FREE virtual events that will honor our two awardees, Joel Hall and Gail Kalver:

Our Happy Hour on October 6 will be a way for the two awardees to share some amazing stories of the many years of service to the Chicago dance sector (and bring your stories too). Be on the look-out for a recipe for our signature mocktail/cocktail as well as an announcement about an exciting matching grant during this virtual event! Zoom RSVP will be available starting on September 22!

Our Finale Celebration and Awards Presentation on October 27 is where we will present our Legacy Award to Joel Hall and our Distinguished Service to the Dance Field Award to Gail Kalver. Join us as we toast to these two luminaries in the Chicago dance community. Zoom RSVP will be available starting October 1.
