Chicago Dancers United ( CDU )—which works to improve the lives of dance professionals through holistic wellness programs and provide financial support to those diagnosed with critical health needs—announced that Dance for Life 2020 will shift from a live performance to a digital event due to social distancing guidelines from the state of Illinois and the city of Chicago.

The event takes place Aug. 10—15 through CDU's website, ChicagoDancersUnited.org . All donations will be welcome.

"Dance for Life 2020: United as One" will feature works archived from Dance for Life performances during the past 29 years, including the annual Partner Dance Companies—Giordano Dance Chicago, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and The Joffrey Ballet—as well as Hanna Brictson and Dancers, Chicago Dance Crash, Ensemble Español Spanish Dance Theater, Joseph Holmes Chicago Dance Theatre, Luna Negra Dance Theater, Muntu Dance Theatre, River North Dance Chicago, Thodos Dance Chicago, Visceral Dance Chicago, and a collaborative work by Chicago Human Rhythm Project, Ensemble Espanol and Trinity Irish Dance Company.

The culminating event—featuring live remarks by CDU representatives and a world premiere choreographed by Hanna Brictson in response to COVID-19, with dancers from throughout the Chicago area—will take place Saturday, Aug. 15, commemorating the originally planned date for the 29th anniversary of Dance for Life at the Auditorium Theatre. People can see it will be available for a minimum donation.

All programming is subject to change. See ChicagoDancersUnited.org .
