Quality Dance Training for All

The mission of Dance Center Evanston is to bring quality dance training to each student enrolled, fostering their physical health, developing their cognitive skills, and inspiring creativity and artistry.

Nurturing Yet Challenging Environment

Dance Center Evanston is dedicated to promoting optimal personal and physical growth in a challenging yet positive environment for dancers of all ages. We believe that each child should receive a solid foundation in a variety of dance techniques and we embrace the uniqueness of each individual dancer.

Progressive Program

Our goal is to offer a carefully designed progressive training program which moves the student from the Primary levels, through the Student Division, and into the Academy Program. We evaluate the student’s progress each year and make appropriate placement suggestions. The cumulative nature of the program is designed to prepare the young dancer for any college or professional program.

Dance is a gift that will last a lifetime.

Dance is an athletic art form that strengthens the student physically, stimulates them mentally, and inspires them artistically. We believe that introducing and enriching children in dance is a wonderful gift that will last a lifetime.

Dance promotes good postural alignment, physical strength, and flexibility. It teaches poise and can have a positive impact on an individual’s level of self-confidence. Dance enhances musical awareness and helps develop rhythm and coordination. It stimulates artistic thought and feelings of well-being.
