The vision of Chicago Urban Dance Collective is to catalyze activism through movement by promoting positive change, love and opportunity. We envision the Chicago community of dancers and enthusiasts alike who are able to access performance, education, and careers in dance forms that have origins in the African Diaspora.

community involvement

Chicago Urban Dance Collective is a dance ensemble pending non-profit status, that seeks to strengthen the urban dance community by creating conditions where qualified educators in the African American Vernacular Dance Community and interested students can thrive. All proceeds from CUDC-hosted events go back to the our community educators, ensemble members, and collaborators.
