The renowned Chicago Movement Collective (CMC), and the venerable Winifred Haun & Dancers (WH&D) will present the first annual PERSISTENT SPRING: a showcase of Chicago dance artists, on May 23 & 24 at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts in Chicago. Persistent Spring will feature dances created by prestigious Chicago area choreographers, including Shannon Alvis, Sarita Smith Childs, Imani English, Crystal Gurrola, Winifred Haun, Mandy Milligan, and Regina Perry-Carr. The showcase will also feature works created by selected program participants.

The purpose of Persistent Spring is to showcase the pre-professional/early career dance artists from the two organizations' educational programs. WH&D's 3rd Coast Contemporary Dance program launched in the fall of 2023. CMC's Claire Bataille Legacy Scholarship program began in the fall of 2020. Both programs offer affordable, professional training to qualified, experienced dancers ages 17-26.

CMC and WH&D have been collaborating to offer classes and workshops to young dance artists, established professional dancers, and the greater Chicago area dance community since March of 2021.
