About Us

Why Chicago Dance Factory

Be Inspired

Not every dance teacher or school is the same. At Chicago Dance Factory, learn from teachers who dance at a level that will give you inspiration by the way they move along with a very clear system they will use to build you into a dancer.

Learn Dance, Not Just Patterns

There is more to dancing than learning basic steps and patterns. At Chicago Dance Factory, you can learn movement in a way that will positively change the way you move, play sports, and even walk for the rest of your life.

Meet a Whole New Community

As a member, you’ll be invited to student functions giving you a chance to meet other students who may become life long friends as well as your “support group”. Our first objective is to help you get dancing at a social level and introduce you to the community.

Dance in a Showcase or Competition

If your dream is to dance in a show, that can happen with one of our Student Showcase Events where you can invite who ever you wish to attend.
If your dream is to dance in competition, Chicago Dance Factory travels with students to exotic places like Orlando, Nashville, and Las Vegas.

Stay Fit and Build Confidence

Dancing is one of the best ways to exercise and stay physically fit. Studies show that dancers maintain a higher quality of life as they age both in the mind and physically. Becoming proficient on the dance floor will also greatly build your self esteem. Learning to dance can be one of the most powerful self development skills you can acquire.
