The Chicago Ballet Center uses dance to change lives. Founded in 2003, the Center inspires people of all ages and abilities to live a life of creativity and passion through dance. Along with its on-site classes, The Chicago Ballet Center teaches dance in many Chicago Public Schools. Currently, over 200 children take ballet classes every week of the school year, with 85% of those children coming from households living below the poverty line. With public schools’ financial constraints, students need your assistance to continue their dance education.
