To introduce Chicago to the range of dance class offerings at the city’s newest collaborative dance/arts facility, the American Rhythm Center (ARC) will host “Dance Free 4 All,” two days of free classes in the newly renovated space on the third floor of the historic Fine Arts Building, 410 S. Michigan Avenue. The event takes place Friday and Saturday, September 21 and 22.


Both days will include free classes for all ability levels in a range of genres and styles, including tap, jazz, African, flamenco, Bollywood and classic Indian, swing, Latin, capoeira, tai chi and more. Teaching the classes will be professionals and young dancers representing ARC’s community partners and other affiliated groups, including Chicago Human Rhythm Project’s resident ensemble  BAM!, Chicago Chinese Cultural Center,  Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre, Giordano Dance Chicago, Kalapriya Center for Indian Performing Arts and more. On Friday, the public also will be able to watch Giordano Dance Chicago in company class and rehearsal.
