Beltone 75th Anniversary

Be the Groove kicks off Beltone's 75th Anniversary at the Sheraton Chicago.

I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding job you did for the 75th Anniversary Beltone Meeting at the Sheraton Chicago. Great energy, a ton of smiles, very happy clients and an ecstatic Executive producer. You were a treat to work with and really made the meeting very special for the audience and those of us behind the scenes. Be the Groove ROCKS!!!

Summer Rhythms

Come join Be the Groove for an intimate and informal performance! With a desire to reconnect to our Chicagoland audience and gain momentum for our next self- produced show, BTG is excited to share our work with YOU. With no lights or stage to separate cast and audience, you'll experience us in our rawest form: an open space, rhythmic explorations, and a whole lot of fun. And if you’re in a rush, no worries—the show will only be about 60 minutes. Come share in the groove with us!
