★ AFRO-SUMMER HAS A NEW HOME! ★

The beautifully renovated Dance Center Chicago is home to many social events and is one of the leading studios supporting Kizomba in Chicago. The studio has been a pillar and instrumental in our Chicago communities growth so it's only right we return the love. Located in the heart of the historic Wrigleyville the venue is conveniently 25 minutes from O'Hare airport, 10 minute walk from host hotel and steps away from the World Famous Chicago Cubs stadium and dozens of great bars, restaurants and shopping.


REST UP IN STYLE! 

The selection of the Afro-Summer location was done with great intention. The venue is surrounded by several 5 star hotels, Home-style suites, hostels and a surplus of airbnbs. We have mapped out the best options for our dance family to enjoy the beautiful city, relax and recharge with ease. The selected hotels are all within 10 minutes of the festival venue and provide comfortable city living housing.
