Held at the historic Athenaeum Theatre, 2936 N. Southport Ave., Chicago, 2012 World Dance Day showcases performances by 11 of Chicago’s most exciting ethnic dance groups representing the traditional dancing of Spain, Bolivia, Mexico, Lithuania, Romania, Korea, China, Ireland, Germany, Africa and the Philippines as well as a few of Chicago’s most respected dance troupes.

“Chicago is internationally respected as a city that is passionate about the art of dance and that passion and enthusiasm for dance as an art form is shared by Mayor Emanuel, a former dancer,” said Altin Naska, co-founder and artistic director of the Chicago International Dance Forum. “Chicago has a rich cultural tapestry comprised of many different ethnic groups and it is important that these beautiful century-old traditions be preserved and shared with a broad audience. Audience members that attend this performance can literally take a trip around the world through the magic of dance.”

Dance groups scheduled to participate in 2012 World Dance Day include Ensemble Espanol (Spain), Renacer Boliviano (Bolivia), Mexican Dance Ensemble (Mexico), Laume (Lithuania), Miorita (Romania), Choomsarang (Korea) as well as the Joel Hall Dance, M.A.D.D.
