Chicago is our second oldest chapter, having stayed active and relevant in the Chicago dance community since EDN!'s first expansion in 2012. The chapter is led by Director Jordan Ordonez, and we are excited to see his vision for the upcoming years unfurl. Chicago, IL has struggling public school systems, a large population at or under poverty level, and has a high rate of gang involvement for teens as young as nine or ten years old, and from this need, Sophia Horwich was motivated to create a chapter in Chicago, and was named Chicago Director in May 2012. EDN!C has also received much attention from local press, such as WBEZ, WGN TV, WGN Radio, and the Chicago Tribune and has inspired the Chicago youth for over seven years!
