Things We Are Smiling About

The 5th annual Katie Lunn “Spread the Smile” Dance workshop and Dance program was a huge success.

On March 8th, 2015 the 5th annual “Spread the Smile” event took place. Professional Choreographers as well as close friends of Katie’s, Kelly Beamish and Kevin Familiar put on a sensational training event for over 150 urban and suburban students from all over Chicago. Eric Bramlett put together an amazing video of interviews of participants, instructors and observers showing how Katie’s message to “Spread the Smile” through dance, continues to impact people. Jessie Novak again organized this special event.

The evening show again featured many professional and student dancers and again amazed the nearly sold out audience at the Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago.
