CPC Brings Poetry to Summer Dance

CPC Brings Poetry to Summer Dance

The Chicago Poetry Center is partnering with the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events to bring poetry to Summer Dance. CPC Poet in Residence Timothy David Rey will be kicking off two neighborhood Summer Dance events with a free and public walking poem workshop. CPC Student poets from neighborhood schools will perform immediately after the workshop and before the dance lesson begins.

Both events are free and open to the public. Details below:
