Dance classes are taught through Innovation Arts Connection. The progressive curriculum focuses on dance concepts and core techniques. We stress the importance of respect, a positive attitude, and hard work. In our classes, students will develop grace, rhythm, coordination, creativity, and confidence in a fun, safe, and structured environment.

We look forward to seeing you in class! Innovation Arts Connection, LLC collaborates with local Chicagoland park districts. For more information about the IAC program including class expectations, dress code, pandemic procedures, and more please visit

Discover Dance Tots

Watch your child's independence and confidence soar, as our dancers explore and discover the benefits of a more structured dance class. Following directions, waiting for our turn, and collectively problem-solving will encourage emotional and social development. Live singing, musical play, and sensory props will have these little ones moving and grooving with their friends and eager to return to class each week! Please wear comfortable clothing and bare feet.


Ballet/Tap Combo is the most popular combo for dancers. Classes include stretches, barre work, class etiquette, basic technique of each style, games and learning choreography in both ballet and tap. Please wear leotard, tights, or comfortable form-fitted clothing, ballet & tap shoes. There is no class on November 20. Located at the ARC Center.

Dance Parties

Dance Parties are a condensed, one-day session of dance technique, movement games, crafts, a mini-performance and much more! Participants of all levels are encouraged to get involved through these camp-style classes that are designed to help participants fill their evening with fun, educational, and movement-oriented programming. Wear comfortable form-fitted clothing, dance shoes or bare feet. Feel free to dress to match the theme too! Please bring a water bottle.
