Crossing Six Corners & Best of Six Corners Award Reception

Six Corners is not just an intersection. It's the 1,938 seat theater, built in 1920, where many Northwest-siders watched their first film. It's the furniture store where you bought your first couch, the corner newsstand where your father picked up the morning paper. It's the 5-floor department store where you went back to school shopping all through your childhood years. Today, it's frozen yogurt after ballet lessons, cocktails and brick-oven pizza.


Six Corners is home. 

To preserve this collective history and decades of memories and stories, Six Corners Association and Filament Theatre have teamed up to create a dynamic partnership presenting Crossing Six Corners to its local community. 

This theatrical patchwork canonizes the history and legend of Chicago’s Northwest Side and the historic Six Corners Shopping District. Through interviews with residents and historians, archived news articles, old pictures, and more, Filament Theatre has developed playful scenes, nostalgic monologues, and creative songs that will fill audience members with love and pride for their Chicago neighborhood.

This will be an invitation only night. This night we will also recognize business owners in the community that are making a change. Cocktail Attire. Tickets for this night will include drinks, dinner, and dessert as well a the special premier of Crossing Six Corners.

This event was made possible by Illinois Humanities.

The Goddess Groove: Belly Dance Inspired Workshop

Fall In Love with Your Body!

Your tummy is your powerhouse AND intuition center. It’s quite ironic that this very area of our body is what we tend to judge the most. In this workshop we will learn how to love your belly and your body. We will:

1. Practice graceful moves that activate and strengthen your “secret weapon” (a.k.a. your pelvic floor), soften your hands and overall appearance, magnetize and enchant the audience.

2. Learn a choreography that is based on the practiced moves.

3. Become more sensual in dancing and life in general.

4. Tone your body

I work your body from head to toe effectively and intensively with joy and ease. You will see immediate results in your energy levels, posture, and overall flexibility.

5. Surround yourself with like-minded, positive sister goddesses who will uplift your spirit and might become life-long friends.

6. Walk away with a cheat sheet so you can practice after the workshop

The awesome benefits don’t stop there, but there’s only one way to find out… It’s time to awaken that beautiful inner powerhouse and intuition center! Bring out the goddess within by signing up for a class. Your tummy will thank you. ?

ALL OF THIS FOR A PRICE OF A LUNCH! Stop with your excuses that there is no time, money, energy, etc. True goddesses invest in themselves

So, darlings get your groove on! ($20 per person)
