Eight dance companies have announced plans to honor the city’s anniversary with a “moveable feast” of dance on two afternoons this fall. On Site: Putting Dance on the Map, which is being curated by the Evanston Dance Ensemble (EDE), features professional groups of dancers performing free public dance events in locations all over downtown Evanston on two Sundays this fall – October 6 and November 3.
Each program features five of the companies performing an original dance piece created for a specific location in Evanston, and each performance site will be within walking distance of each other. Dance companies include Elements Contemporary Ballet, enidsmith dance, Cartier Collective, Be the Groove, The Leopold Group, Striding Lion Performance Group and Lake Dance.

When: Sunday, Oct. 6 & Nov. 3 – 2:00 p.m.
