"Harrison and I look forward to celebrating the Chicago dance community once again with a show by the dancers and for the dancers," said Plummer. "We showcase dancers and companies from all over Chicago for a unique night of show-stopping glitz and glamour!" Co-chairs of Dance Divas 2022 are Kevin McGirr and Aaron Weiss.
