Come Dance With Us!

Dance Center Evanston brings quality dance training to each student enrolled, fostering their physical health, developing their cognitive skills, and inspiring creativity and artistry.

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.
