DanceWorks Chicago has two delicious Dance Bytes for you this week: Dinner tomorrow and lunch on Friday.

April 1 from 6:30 to 7:30pm at the dance studio at Gallery 37, DanceWorks Chicago and youths from Kari Wall and Amy Wilkinson’s After School Matters will share phrases the ASM kids have created, inspired by Twyla Tharp’s The One Hundreds. Active in the DWC repertoire, the company will perform its version of the piece as well–also on the program will be a second DanceWorks presentation and a piece developed and performed by ASM.

Friday’s Dance Bytes will be back at the ranch (DWC’s headquarters at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts), where the smoldering Miguel Perez will preview a new work for the sextet, set to the music of the Canadian Guitar Quartet. Its formal premiere will be a week later with the musicians accompanying DWC live, April 10 at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall at Northwestern University.

Even more free Dance Bytes action follows April 9 and July 30, both from 12:15-1:15pm at the Harold Washington Library; this company’s generosity truly knows no bounds.
