The Weekend is Almost Here!

Stressed over school, work, or people? Have no fear, Hump Day is here! That means it’s almost the weekend! It’s time to check out some of Chicago’s performing arts happenings for this weekend. We guarantee these fun events will distract you from your worries so you can start your week stress-free. Here’s what going on this weekend:

“Boobs and Goombas: A Super Mario Burlesque”

You’re probably thinking what I’m thinking: what IS this?! See, because I’m a fan of the Super Mario Brothers, as well as Burlesque dancing (but not necessarily boobs…), this title caught my attention. So how in the world do Mario, burlesque dancing, and boobs all relate? This weekend marks the 25th anniversary of the Super Mario Brothers. Therefore, Chicago presents the theater production, “Boobs and Goombas: A Super Mario Burlesque” featuring local burlesque artists and, of course, Mario and Luigi. The two brothers are on a quest to save Princess Peach once again, but this time, everything around them seems to turn into some sort of seductress, distracting them from their goal. Will Mario and Luigi save the Princess? Find out this Friday and Saturday at the Gorilla Tango Theater, located near the intersection of Milwaukee, Western, and Armitage! Photo courtesy of

Happy 10th Anniversary to the Chicago International Salsa Congress!

Join D.A.S. Chicago in congratulating the Chicago International Salsa Congress on their tenth anniversary! Going on this Thursday through Sunday, check out the biggest Latin Music and Dance festival of the year that will feature performances by teen dancers and professional dancers around the world, workshops, master classes, and even dance parties until 3:00 A.M.! With over 70 classes, 60 workshops, and 7 live productions, this event definitely sounds like a party. You are sure to leave with stories to tell, a pleasant salsa dancing experience, and no worries! There are plenty of chances to be a part of this ongoing Latin bash located at the Westin Hotel at O’Hare! Photo courtesy of


This Sunday, and every Sunday, from 3:00-4:15 P.M. at Lou Conte Dance Studio (located near the Racine Blue Line stop), don’t miss a high-energy hip hop class with BOOM CRACK! Dance Company! Sure to rid your mind and body of stress, a member from BOOM CRACK! will be teaching you choreography, footwork, and free-styling for ONLY $8! How could you pass this up?

Have an eventful and stress-free weekend!
