Be A Fan In Chicago!

We invite all family and friends to move to our “Be A Fan” zone in front of the stage/performance floor when their athlete’s team is performing! 

When in the “Be A Fan” zone, HAVE FUN! The athletes LOVE when you’re clapping, singing, and cheering for them in this section! Please be respectful of our staff, judges, and other spectators by keeping the flow moving smoothly into and out of this area.
