“. . . [T]he arts have been an inseparable part of the human journey; indeed, we depend on the arts to carry us toward the fullness of our humanity. We value them for themselves, and because we do, we believe knowing and practicing them is fundamental to the healthy development of our children’s minds and spirits. That is why, in any civilization — ours included — the arts are inseparable from the very meaning of the term ‘education.’ We know from long experience that no one can claim to be truly educated who lacks basic knowledge and skills in the arts.” – National Standards for Arts Education
Please help Joel Hall Dancers & Center (JHDC) continue our mission of using the arts to enrich and positively impact the lives of our community by providing accessible and affordable dance education, along with showcase performances that sharpen essential life skills.
- Problem Solving
- Non-Verbal Communication
- Receiving Constructive Feedback
We reach out to those who may not otherwise be exposed to the arts. Both JHDC and our audiences exhibit a diverse spectrum of cultural, ethnic, racial and economic backgrounds.
Your generous support enables us to keep our dance classes and performances appealing, relevant and approachable for those frequently underserved by the arts. JHDC is a Chicago-based 501c3 non-profit that relies on generous community support to fund our programming & performances.
Here are a just a few things your monetary support goes towards:
1. Building upkeep – New facade signage, Window repair, Studio repair, etc.
2. Costuming – Help keep our Youth Division dancers styled (and clothed!) for their shows
3. Operational Supplies – Heat maintenance, Office/promotional supplies (ink, toner, paper, etc.)
