MIX at SIX: The Academy Repertory Dance Company
Chicago Academy for the Arts is home to the premiere Dance Program for conservatory-bound pre-professional dancers. Alumni from this program can be found at such companies, conservatories, and universities as: New York City Ballet, Juilliard, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Joffrey Ballet, NYU, Houston Ballet, and dozens more. This thrilling performance will be held in the Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater for Music and Dance. The Harris Theater is a 1500-seat state-of-the art performance venue located in Chicago’s Millennium Park and is the first multi-use performance venue built in downtown Chicago since 1929. Before and after the show feel free to experience the fun of street food, with a plethora of food trucks around the theatre, or sip a cocktail at a surrounding café. Before we head back, we will make a brief stop at Magnolia Bakery. This popular NYC-based sweet shop has moved across the country with a location in the heart of Chicago’s Loop. Nationally renowned for their cupcakes and other sweet treats, Magnolia is sure to zing your tastebuds.
