McLean County Dance Association

Community Outreach

Each year, we offer performances for local community events, organizations or schools in the form of lecture-demonstrations. The Dance Association's affiliate performing companies perform and may include an explanation and discussion of dance and choreography. Our intent is to encourage the appreciation and understanding of dance as an art form and to introduce the many different forms of dance, including ballet, modern, jazz, tap, and hip hop.
