Share your story with See Chicago Dance!

Are you an avid reader of See Chicago Dance? Are you a dancer, watcher, or simply someone with an interesting perspective on the practice, lifestyle, and enjoyment of dance in Chicago and beyond? You could be the next author published on See Chicago Dance!






Our Readers Write is a See Chicago Dance article feature series in which we turn the keyboard over to you, and let you share your thoughts on anything related to dance in Chicago. Previously, readers have shared their own personal journeys, interesting stories about hallmark figures in Chicago dance, and other essays and stories that span the gamut of what dance is about.
