Artistic Statement: 

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago's (HSDC) approach to dance education brings students into the world of dance by actively engaging them in perception, research, reflection, and discussion. Our process-based curriculum assists students in strengthening basic proficiencies to develop analytical and abstract thinking, interpretation, and problem-solving skills that are as relevant to studying dance as to analyzing literature or exploring physics.
