The Other Dance Festival was founded in 2002 by co-curators/producers Kay LaSota and Elizabeth Lentz and is produced by The Chicago Moving Company. Held every fall for 3-weeks, this concert series presents sixteen of Chicago's finest modern dance artists and companies. The ODF exists to provide a venue and visibility for Chicago modern dance artists and their work, as well as a one-stop site where Chicago audiences can sample and sink their teeth into a cross section of Chicago modern dance artists and styles.
2009 Festival Sponsors: The Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation, The Alphawood Foundation .
