Ok so this isn’t tango related. And yes, I have been slacking again on posting info but, in my defense, a lot of the press releases and event notices I get are hard to decipher!

Nonetheless I thought people in Chicago who are interested in dance might be interested in a free performance and QA with the Joffrey Ballet. They are having a free sneak peek of their Spring Desire program at Joffrey Tower, 10 East Randolph Street in Chicago on May 2 at 5:45 p.m. Dancers will perform excerpts and there will be a Q& A with artistic director, Ashley C. Wheater.

There will be a reception with wine and hors d’ouevres in Joffrey's rehearsal studio You will need to RSVP by Wednesday, April 25, 2012. Email affinity@joffrey.org or call 312-784-4640

Wednesday, May 2
5:45 pm Registration
6:00 pm Program and Q&A
