Street Beats: Dance through the Decades
Friday—March 14, 2014

The Charleston, the jitterbug, the hustle and bump! Dance your way through the 20th century, from the roaring ’20s to the hiphop ’90s, with River Dance North Chicago. With full costume changes for each dance style—from flapper dresses to poodle skirts to polyester—dancers give some historical background for each decade before taking the audience on the dance tour of the century.
