I found the perfect lunchtime getaway!

Most of us have less than an hour to chow down on whatever Chicago grub we set our eyes on but with this good find you can literally “Eat to the Beat”.

On January 12th, The Harris Theater for Music and Dance continued the 3rd season of its celebrated Eat to the Beat lunchtime series with a one-hour performance by DanceWorks Chicago and featured guests for only FIVE DOLLARS! DanceWorks Chicago’s commitment is to “Community” not “Company”, the Participatory, rather than the Proprietary. Touche!

This crowd-pleasing series, Eat to the Beat, is aimed towards those Chicagoans who work, live, shop, or just find themselves in the vicinity of the Harris during the workday lunch hour. It’ll take your mind off the workday still ahead and add some excitement in your lunch break that I guarantee you didn’t have before!

DanceWorks featured multiple dances within the hour:

Paradigm by Christian Spuck

A preview of Addio Amore by European choreographer Nelly van Bommel

Western Michigan University’s dance department

& last but certainly not least, James Gregg’s Nocturnal Sense

So instead of sitting in your cubicle, come enjoy your lunch during the Eat to the Beat performances! If you didn’t bring your lunch to work then no worries, food will be available to buy from Chicago’s finest food trucks that are on-site during performances outside the Theater on Lower Randolph Drive.

For just $10 more you can buy an “all you can experience cultural buffet” Lunch Pass that allows you to enjoy the full Eat to the Beat performance series for only $15 (there are two upcoming events in March & one in May).

Individual tickets and lunch passes are available at the Harris Theater box office located in Millennium Park at 205 E. Randolph Dr., by calling 312-334-7777 or by visiting
