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.
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.
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.
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.
