Chicago's fall dance season officially kicked off last weekend with performances at Links Hall, The Dance Center, The Drucker Center and Defibrillator Gallery.

While every new season offers the promise of great dance, this fall is extremely lush. From anniversaries (Hubbard Street Dance Chicago 35, Giordano Dance Chicago 50) to revivals (Joffrey Ballet presenting Kurt Jooss' 1967 The Green Table) to visiting touring companies (Gallim Dance, Trey McIntyre Project, Moscow Ballet), the Windy City is bringing its dance talent to a new level.
