Self-care is important. Sometimes we take better care of others than of ourselves. Please join us for a week of well-deserved focus on YOU!

DanceForce is a comprehensive training program for dance students (15+), professional aspirants, and early-career dancers. Programming includes classes in a variety of dance techniques, DanceWorks Chicago repertory, mentorship sessions, artistic
