Save the date for The Chicago Green Light Exchange Weekend...where EVERYTHING GOES! This weekend will feature the very best of live Chicago entertainment all weekend long. We're talking Swing, Hot Jazz, Blues, and all points in between.

Great venues, great live music, walking tours around the city, dance bombs, food, fun, springtime in the greatest city around, and getting back to the roots of why we love to dance.

Some very special features of the weekend will be Johnny Boyd's  triumphant return to the South Shore Cultural Center after more than a decade, the Spring Balboa Workshop with Mickey Fortanasce and Kelly Arsenault, dance only passes, taster workshops, late night venues, and LOTS OF LIVE MUSIC that includes jam sessions with Chicago's brightest musical stars.
