This holiday season, DanceWorks Chicago is excited to unwrap Dance360, a holistic approach to dance training and artistic development. DanceWorks Chicago’s leadership team of Andreas Böttcher, CEO, and Julie Nakagawa, Artistic Director, welcomes Dance360 Program Director Sara Bibik. Ms. Bibik, a Founding Dancer with River North Dance Chicago who has been recognized with a Ruth Page Award for a “Season of Outstanding Dancing”, has also served as RNDC’s Workshop Director and Artistic Administrator. “I am thrilled to join the DanceWorks Chicago family during this exciting 10th Anniversary Season. My passion to help young dancers is inspired by their determination and dedication. Team DWC recognizes that dancers are hungry for technical rigor, genuine relationships, and inspirational mentorship. Dance360 is dedicated bringing together dancers, their families, and the dance community.”
