NileGuide Expert tip:
Get your tickets ahead of time as this small house tends to sell out. If you're in town for a few weeks, by a festival pass that gives you access to all the performances.
On a Thursday or Friday night in September, if you travel to Roscoe Village's Hamlin Park, on the top floor of the field house, you will find a packed house for that weekend's offerings at The Other Dance Festival. This alternative festival celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2011 by adding a fourth weekend of solid sold out shows and presenting twenty four of the city's best modern dance companies and choreographers. While this may not be appropriate for the whole family, if you're looking for something off the beaten path that will stimulate your mind (and if you sign up for the workshops, get your body moving!) the Other Dance Festival will not disappoint.
