Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsThe Chicago Dancing Festival is pleased to announce the program for its sixth season of free dance performances and events, set to take place August 20–25, 2012.

The 2012 Chicago Dancing Festival (CDF) will once again expand to include a sixth consecutive day of programming. An “all Chicago” evening at the Harris Theater; a robust “East to West” performance at the Auditorium Theatre; a film festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; and the Festival’s signature Grand Finale on the stunning outdoor stage of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park.
