About the event

We're excited to announce that this August, we're throwing our second summer dance camp The Community Link '23 in Chicago!

To connect 23 Dance Teachers with passionate adult students from various communities to make lifelong connections through 5 Days of workshops, discussion panels, performances, networking, breakthroughs, and many, many smiles.


  • Dance Classes. 23 Int/Adv Masterclasses from teaching artists around the world who are elevating the world of dance. Don’t worry, we also have beginner classes!

We'll be taking a break Saturday morning/afternoon to give attendees a chance to travel around the city and explore different "Link Up" locations. We will offer a guidebook with our recommendations along with an optional tour guided by some of our faculty.
  • Discussion Lectures. The mix of a Q&A and table talk where faculty members link up to discuss different dance-related topics in front of the community.
  • Review Sessions. Ever wish you could do the piece just one more time? Have no fear, you’ll be able to do them twice a day, everyday until the end of the camp thanks to our review sessions where we review all of the pieces taught throughout the camp.
