The Ruth Page Festival of Dance Kicks Off Ravinia's Summer Season with Two World Premiere Performances

For many, Ruth Page and dance in Chicago are synonymous. The Ruth Page Civic Ballet brings the elegance, artistry, and creative daring of its namesake in a world-premiere performance at Ravinia this season. In honor of the 50th anniversary of The Ruth Page Center for the Arts, two different programs will highlight the unique artistic collaborations of this Chicago cultural institution and the next generation of extraordinary dance artists.

This evening is a stunning showcase of dance and theater by leading Chicago artists, all of whom are in residence at The Ruth Page Center. Sharing the stage with the Ruth Page Civic Ballet in this mixed program are Giordano Dance Chicago, Hedwig Dances, DanceWorks Chicago, and Porchlight Music Theatre.

Also join us on Friday, May 20 for a program featuring contemporary and neoclassical works performed by the Ruth Page Civic Ballet.
