UPDATE: DanceWorks Chicago is dedicated to creating a safe space for artists and audiences, now more so than ever. In alignment with the extension of the State of Illinois’ Shelter in Place directive, Team DWC has pushed “pause” on our menu of offerings (including DayLabs) through May 31.
These are trying times…time to try something new! Team DWC is taking a, wait for it, 360 degree look at our Dance360 programming scheduled to start mid-July. Program Director Sara Bibik is hard at work! Please stay tuned for creative possibilities! #StillMoving
Described by dancers as “inspiring”, “impactful”, “refreshing”, and “transformative”, DanceWorks Chicago continues Dance360, a holistic approach to dance training and artistic development. “Dancers need a diverse set of tools to be successful in the studio, on stage, and in life. Dance360 will help young artists identify, develop, and utilize these tools on their journey through dance.” — DWC Artistic Director Julie Nakagawa.
From Dance360 Summer Dancers
“Dance360 summer programming helped me find renewed confidence and cultivate a playground for curiosity.”
“I wasn’t familiar with the DanceWorks Culture … It is something I feel that it is hard to truly read unless immersed within the dancers, teachers, and administrators. It definitely became more important and is the reason I want to return to this program next summer. It was a safe space to grow as a young artist.”
“I had high expectations for the classes and seminars. Subject matter that was discussed everyday blew me away!”
“I would love to thank the DanceWorks Chicago company members (previous and current) involved with the summer programming. Their professionalism, positive energy, and genuine interest and investment in the well-being and growth of all the people in the room was felt and appreciated. It was uplifting and inspiring to have such a beautiful examples of what good dance citizens embody: work ethic, professionalism, openness, and overall dedication to and passion for the art form.”
