Adapted from the popular animated film by DreamWorks, Madagascar Live! brings to life the furry adventures of the familiar cast of on-the-lam zoo animals as they break out of New York's Central Park Zoo and return to their ancestral homeland in the African isle of Madagascar. This frenetic fusion of music and dance celebrates friendship with original songs, imaginative sets, and vivid costumes, leaving audience members clamoring to stage their own inspired midmorning escapes from the carpool lane. With more than 4,000 seats—each with unobstructed views—Rosemont Theatre provides a much more stately venue to witness a dancing-animal show than the neighborhood dogs' backyard production of The Sound of Music. Seats will be located in balcony level A through S or floor level AA-HH. Ticket pick-up is available starting an hour before the performance. Groups should plan to pick up their tickets early for best chance of sitting together.

Bursting with two fully equipped dance studios and a philosophy of noncompetitive learning, Dance Center of LaGrange brings skilled teachers and a miscellany of dance types to the feet of dancers both young and old. Tykes can twirl toward the 45–60 minute summer-session classes to introduce tentative toes to preballet and creative movement (ages 3–4), learning new moves and gaining confidence while composing a rhythmic symphony with their 10-toed orchestra. The Storycise class (ages 3–5) combines storytelling and exercise to produce a hybrid fitness adventure filled with heart-pumping moves and poses that spell entire novel chapters. Teens can hit up the modern/jazz class for a medley of Broadway-style shimmying, and grown-up steppers can twist into adult tap, lacing up specialty shoes to conquer rapid routines and drum out grocery lists onto the hardwood floor.

The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, which was cofounded by legendary toe tapper Fred Astaire himself, shepherd students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum.

Kids rev up their imaginations inside Exploritorium, transforming into little inventors, climbers, or stars of the stage. Tykes caper through a slew of different interactive spaces, including a two-and-half story play structure chock full of tunnels and slides. A waterfall provides kids with a space to play with water toys, and includes a space for toddlers to sit and play in. Visual creations illuminate a giant light brite, and an engineering station crinkles new folds into little scientifically-minded brains. Nearby, a dress-up area wardrobes kids for stints as princesses and heros, readying them to act out adventures on the nearby stage.

More formal performances occur the third Tuesday of every month. On those days, a storyteller takes over the stage and spins exciting, family-friendly tales. Holidays usher in even more events, such as a Halloween party and an Itty Bitty New Year for families.
