Chicago's Spirit of Music Garden in Grant Park plays host to a summer season of dance. Each evening the 4,900 sq foot floor blossoms into an urban dance space that features musical styles ranging from jazz to polka; afro beat to salsa. This free event encourages dancers of all ages, races and experience to step onto the floor, let go and feel the music.
On this particular evening, Jamie Gallant and myself encountered the delights of Ballroom.
We kindly thank the dancers Sam Slattery, Erin Kirk, Sam Henle, Estelle and Norman for taking part and helping us understand that this event not only embodies the spirit of dance but also keeps the community spirit of Chicago alive.
