Wonder Woman charges onto the battlefield every man insists she ignore. Kylo Ren bellydances into the Dark Side. Thor throws around his hammer (and fire). Join the Chicago Reader's Best Dance Troupe 2017 (runner-up) in our new, later time slot for as we explore gods, midi-chlorians, and superheroes with bellydance and fire.
A portion of proceeds will go to the National Runaway Safeline to make sure vulnerable youth always have a confidential, non-judgmental person to talk to.
