The Captivating Culture of Chicago

The city of Chicago can be found in the U.S. state of Illinois. Geographically, the city is located in the northeastern section of Illinois. It sits along the Lake Michigan’s southwestern shores. Specifically, Chicago is on a continental divide of the Chicago Portage, which is a water gap that connects the watersheds and waterways, namely: the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River. There are three significant bodies of water near Chicago. Aside from Lake Michigan, the city is also near the Calumet River and the Chicago River.

Chicago ranks as the 3rd most populous city in the country. It is next to New York and Los Angeles in terms of population. According to the United States Census Bureau, Chicago has a population of 2.7 million residents, making it the most populous city in Illinois and also the American Midwest. Chicagoland, which is the name of its Metropolitan Area, has an estimated population of 9.5 million people. Chicagoland is composed of 3 states, namely, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin, and principal cities such as Chicago, Aurora, Oak Park, Kenosha, Waukegan, Berwyn, Wheaton, Des Plaines and Joliet among others. Chicago is also the seat of government of Cook County.

In the Western World, the city of Chicago is known for its captivating culture that has been churning out trends for the world to follow. Its theater scene is a major pride in the city, and the country as well. The presence of comedy troupes within the city’s borders, such as the ImprovOlympic or the so-called I.O. and the Second City, justified the fact that modern improvisational comedy was discovered and improved in Chicago. Public theater presentations are prevalent in Chicago since the city is home to famous theater groups, such as the Goodman Theatre, Victory Gardens Theatre and Steppenwolf Theatre Company. The city is also known for its open-space locations such as downtown houses and storefront stages that allow the musical presentation and plays.

Aside from the well-known theater scene, dance troupes are also a cause for commotion in Chicago. Some of the famous dance troupes that call Chicago their home are Lyric Opera of Chicago and the Joffrey Ballet among others. The city nurtures different music genres such as House, Hip Hop, Gospel, Jazz, Chicago Blues and Chicago Soul. In the 1980s, the city was named as the center for industrial, punk and new wave. Due to its early inclination for music, Chicago’s musical innovation developed a contemporary flair that serves as an inspiration among contemporary artists who live or visit in Chicago.
