***1/2 (out of four) Disclaimer: I don't care about dance, and I don't know anything about it. So no one's more shocked than I am at my reaction to writer-director Wim Wenders' stunningly gorgeous documentary about German choreographer Pina Bausch. Rather than providing any biographical information that would fill out a biopic or a Google search, Wenders uses spectacular 3-D to bring viewers into the meat of a choreographer's work: the dances. Other than bits of archival footage, we see Bausch's work performed both on stage and in...

Review: Slippery Slope 2357 N. Milwaukee Ave. 773-799-8504 Rating: 3 1/2 (out of 4) Already hot Slippery Slope will be judged by whether people describe it as "a fun bar. " That's how partners Danny Shapiro and Andy Gould describe their ambitions for the two-week-old Logan Square spot, and while that goal may sound laughably simple, it's anything but. The prevailing cocktail trend in the city was, for a while, toward severity....

When the Bears realized they were going to lose special teams Pro Bowler Corey Graham in the offseason, they set their sights on one man: San Francisco linebacker and special teams standout Blake Costanzo.

As the Bears prepare to face the 49ers in San Francisco on Monday, Costanzo spoke with RedEye about his former team - and the impending dance-off prior to the opening kick.   Talk about meeting 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh for the first time.

Even if you don't immediately recognize the name Leiomy Maldonado, there's a good chance you've seen her signature dance move “The Leiomy Lolly” in music videos from Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Beyonce. And if you still have no clue, you have a chance to find out Friday night at DePaul University's first-ever vogue showcase, where Maldonado will be the featured performer. Maldonado has become the face of voguing--a dance that was popularized in the gay community in the late '70s and '80s and features quick, graceful movements that...

You know how The Roots band leader Questlove kind of always seems to be in Chicago deejaying at a nightclub nearby? If you didn't previously think that these sets were not to be missed, i'm telling you: Don't miss a Questlove DJ set if you can help it. Headlining an all-star lineup of DJs at the live Turntable.fm showcase at SXSW on March 15--with A-Trak and Diplo--Questlove led a group of dance-hungry kiddos (like myself at the time, let's be...

We're only weeks away from the annual Hunger Games of our twenties: wedding season. Fortunately in this case, the only thing being massacred is your bank account. For those of you still in your early stages of adulthood, it goes like this for most of us: You graduate, get a crappy job, turn 25, then BOOM! All of a sudden you're in a seafoam green dress or a far-too-baggy tuxedo watching your college homie declare he or she won't shack with another soul for the rest of eternity. (This act will be repeated no less than 8 times over the next few years, unless you were in a sorority, then...

These days, you might easily find yourself nodding your head before cheering on the Bulls at the United Center. The pregame groove is the handiwork of DJ Flipside. The Chicago native is actually the official music coordinator for the Bulls this season. RedEye chatted it up with him during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. "Official Music Coordinator" sounds like a pretty intense title. Yeah, This is the first year for this position so it's been fun so far. I actually work on the job with DJ Marquis and DJ Metro.

This weekend the scene at Soldier Field won't be about da Bears but da bass, and the drops won't be coming in the form of fumbles or incomplete passes. Instead, fans of electronic dance music (EDM) will be the ones touching down in the stadium for Chicago's new Spring Awakening Festival. Spring Awakening bills itself as “Chicago's first all-dance music festival,” a statement of purpose that differentiates the fest from the city's other electronic-heavy fests like Lollapalooza's Perry's stage or North Coast Music Festival.

For Michael Novak, the performing arts have come full circle. As a kid growing up in Rolling Meadows, Ill., he was bitten by the stage bug when he attended his first theatrical performance: "The Phantom of the Opera" at The Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. Now, he returns to the Auditorium to leap, soar and fly onstage with the Paul Taylor Dance Company as part of the world-renowned modern dance ensemble's 60th anniversary tour, which ends its spring season in Chicago before gearing up for national and international dates in the summer.

Some people will do anything to gain Twitter followers. Actress Kate Walsh took her quest to the pole Tuesday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show. " Walsh, who plays an ex-stripper in FX's new drama "Fargo," did a pole dance as DeGeneres threw dollar bills, silly string and other things at her. It was actually DeGeneres's idea. Walsh recently reached 500,000 Twitter followers and posted a video of her doing a high kick as a thank you. DeGeneres, who has 28.5 million Tweeps, said she could do better.

I'll admit it, and I don't care who knows it: I'm digging the everloving shit out of these Harlem Shake videos. That's right, I said it. It's the greatest music/video fad of the decade. I can't get enough. Every new one that pops up seems funnier, wittier, sharper and more awesome than the last. They're fantastic. I've watched the Miami Heat one like 40 times. Mario Chalmers dressed as Nintendo's Mario! Classic. No, I'm not joking. I'm entirely serious, and to prove it, I'll say that I usually hate these things.
