Event description

Description

STOMPING GROUNDS is a free two-month citywide celebration of authentic, rhythmic dance companies from a variety of world cultures, including American tap, Spanish, Mexican, African, Indian, Native American, Hip-hop, and Irish dance. The series culminates with the grand finale at the Pritzker Pavilion in Milennium Park on Thursday, June 7.

The series visits Pilsen on Saturday, April 28th at the National Museum of Mexican Art. This event will feature the Mexican Folk Dance Company of Chicago alongside Natya Dance Theatre and Trinity Irish Dance Company. Our events are free and open to the public, but if you would like to support the arts and STOMPING GROUNDS, you may reserve a supporter ticket (applicable to some venues).
