Joel Hall Dancers & Center

Joel Hall Dancers & Center — a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in Chicago, Illinois — relies on generous community support to fund our programming.  Our mission is to enrich the lives of our community through dance education and performance.

Our focus is on developing Chicago’s native talent pool in a welcoming environment that celebrates multiculturalism & ethnic diversity.  We’ve achieved a noted reputation as a quintessential American Contemporary Urban Jazz Ballet Company — sophisticated & accessible.

Open 7 days a week — we are one of Chicago’s largest dance education facilities.  With over 150 adult and children’s classes, JHDC offers one of the most extensive dance and movement curriculums in the Midwest.

Our community-based Center is particularly committed to making dance available to all people, regardless of age, interest or experience level.

Students are offered performance & choreography workshops providing them with the opportunity to present original works.  Other disciplines are cultivated through Master classes and exposure to teachers and performers from prestigious national & international dance organizations.
