Nominate Chicago’s Best Dance Teachers

With all the great performances going on during Chicago Dance Month, it’s hard not to notice the wealth of good dance and dancers available in our city.

But where did we learn this stuff from?!


For me, saddling up to the barre every once in awhile (though not as often as I should) is grounding – almost spiritual.  At this point in my dance life I have three favorite teachers who I like to take class from, and I don’t often, if ever, stray to another instructor.  The impact of these teachers on the way I dance, and, perhaps more importantly, on the way I think about dance cannot be underestimated.  Maybe someday I’ll sit down and write about these teachers who have been so influential in my dance career.

In the meantime, I want to hear it from you:

Who are your favorite dance teachers in Chicago and why?

To nominate a teacher, all you have to do is fill out the form below and submit it by April 15th, 2013.  The top five teachers with the most nominations will be profiled here on Art Intercepts, and will be announced during National Dance Week at the end of Chicago Dance Month.  Feel free to nominate more than once person!

Sorry, this survey has closed!
