Each year Duets For My Valentine pulls together an eclectic mix of dancers and companies from across the city to woo young lovers for one night at the historic Park West. The styles range from breakdance to ballet (and in the case of companies like Chicago Dance Crash, both at once) so both parties on the date are bound to be enthralled, if not by serial fuetes, then by windmills. This year’s lineup includes the aforementioned Dance Crash, Joel Hall Dancers, Chicago Tap Theatre, Breakdance Chicago, Elements Contemporary Ballet, Crooks Crew, Corpo Dance Company, Same Planet Different World, DanceWorks Chicago, dancer/choreographer Jeffrey Hancock, and Framework Dance Chicago. After the show, the audience is invited to put down their wine glass and take the stage to do a bit of dancing themselves. (Sharon Hoyer)
