We invite you to
A youth empowerment dance summit with the future in mind.
Join us for a night of dance on Saturday, June 16!
Our feature programming in the evening, will be two youth-based dance battles (3v3 Breaking battle [2 youth, 1 adult] / 2v2 Open/All Styles [1 adult, 1 youth]) and a performance showcase designed to highlight the talent and art of Chicago’s youth. Earlier that afternoon, we will be hosting a variety of community programs and discussion panels centered around how dance can have the power to combat issues throughout the city.
We will show that dance can be used as a means...
… for Community Building & Youth Empowerment,
… for Social Change & Violence Prevention,
… to Making a Living, and
… for Self-Expression.
We will be creating a space for youth to voice their stories and interact with dance-based professionals, who can show them that dance can be the means to deliver so much more than it initially appears.
