Dance to China! - Ping Tom Memorial Park

  • Ping Tom Memorial Park 1700 South Wentworth Avenue Chicago, IL, 60605 United States (map)

Learn Chinese culture through dance! Learn and play through performances, cultural lessons, and hands-on activities. Through dances from China's different regions and ethnic enclaves, audiences can see first-hand how dance transcends linguistic and cultural boundaries as a means of expression.

Admission is free!

Dance to China! is presented as part of the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks series, supported by Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Arts programming in neighborhoods across the city advances the goals of the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Cultural Plan. Now in its fourth year, the 2016 Night Out in the Parks series will host over 1,000 cultural events and programs at more than 250 neighborhood parks throughout the city, making community parks a safe haven and hubs of activity. Projects will vary from traditional performances and concerts, to movies, peace rallies, community workshops, nature based programs, dance pieces, festivals, and more. The Chicago Park District has partnered with more than 120 arts and community organizations to expand and produce this successful initiative.
