The Illinois High School Dance Festival is traditionally an annual gathering of high school dancers and their teachers. This exciting day of dance includes four master classes, a professional company performance, and a student choreography showcase. High school students from Illinois are given the opportunity to take class with some of Chicago's premiere teachers, choreographers and performers. Teachers are able to network, enhance lesson plans through class participation and also enjoy two fabulous dance concerts alongside their students. The Festival provides a dance intensive experience with many styles of dance. Students and teachers are able to share this day with their peers throughout the state in an effort to create connections, to learn through similarities and differences in our programs and to simply appreciate the art of dance!
