This international sensation has smashed box office records in more than 20 countries and won more awards than any other dance production. Winner of nine Global awards, including “Best Choreography” and “Best International Production” and called by the International Post “The World’s Greatest Irish Dance Show,” the dancers of Spirit of the Dance deliver powerful, show stopping rhythms of Irish Dance combined with the passionate Latino rhythms of Tango, Flamenco and Red-Hot Salsa to produce a thrilling production.


The Riverfront Theater is Chicago’s newest destination for music, theater, dance, spectacles and more. Audiences were first introduced to the venue last summer, during the successful 16-week run of Peter Pan. The Riverfront Theater expands on that success, bringing hit productions to Chicago.  All performances take place in 70-foot tall, 22,000 square-foot, temperature-controlled tented auditorium along the scenic Chicago River. Alongside the performance venue is River’s Edge, a pavilion tent and promenade area overlooking the Chicago River, where patrons can enjoy refreshments while taking in the view from this urban garden oasis.
