The sensuality of dance is the focus of two world-premiere performances by River North Dance Chicago. This weekend's engagement is titled "Love Is ..." and includes "Contact-Me," the first U.S. commission from Mauro Astolfi of Italy's premiere Spellbound Dance Company, and "The Good Goodbyes," a collaboration between artistic director Frank Chaves and Josephine Lee, artistic director for the Chicago Children's Choir. Plus other selections and an optional "Love Is ... Celebration" party ($25) after the Saturday performance.
