State Street offers a wide variety of classes for children and adults including; Ballet, Pointe, Character, Jazz, Modern, Lyrical, Tap, Hip Hop, Ballroom, Nia, and Yoga. State Street recently began a Ballet Training Program designed for students wishing to pursue a professional ballet or dance career. Performing is a key component at State Street. Students at State Street participate in an annual performance at the Paramount Theatre. In addition, each year State Street presents The Nutcracker at Norris Cultural Arts Center and Stars of Dance Chicago at the Paramount Theatre. State Street students and guest artists perform annually at the Athenaeum Theater in Chicago as part of Dance Chicago. Performing Companies represent the studio throughout the year at local events, fund-raisers and performances.
The State Street Dance Studio Philosophy is to raise the bar by bringing Chicago-quality dance education to the Suburbs. Faculty members strive to help each student reach his or her personal potential, and inspire excellence of body, mind, and spirit, in a non-competitive, non-judgmental atmosphere. State Street students learn that mistakes are crucial to learning, and that learning is the basis for their growth.
"State Street Dance Studio is committed to teaching and passing on the art of inspiration through dance and physical expression. The studio welcomes students of all ages and abilities to open your arms, spread your swings and let your spirit soar?"
Linda Lee Cunningham, Founder/Artistic Director
