The R & B Dance Center mission is to create not only outstanding dancers, but outstanding young women and men.  R & B Dance Center instructors create a space where dancers feel welcome and are able to feel challenged to achieve their goals in a safe, friendly, and encouraging atmosphere.

R & B Dance Center strives to bring the passion and joy for dance to its students in a unique, family-oriented atmosphere.  Its highly qualified professional dance instructors, most of whom perform with Chicago area dance companies, work with students of all ages and abilities to develop each student’s individual talents.  To showcase the dancers’ accomplishments, they are invited to perform in the annual show, which is a professionally produced musical production.

Featuring two large, recently renovated, studio spaces, R & B Dance Center offers dance classes at a variety of levels, and individual (private) instruction for ages 3 – adult in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, modern, musical theatre, acro/tumbling and creative movement.  In addition, R & B Dance Center has three competitive dance companies for ages 7-18, who also perform for a variety of community events.  In order to find the right placement for your dancer, you are always welcome to try a class free of charge.
