The DanceBuilders are a giving circle that supports the infrastructure and programs of See Chicago Dance. DanceBuilders value the strength of a dynamic and diverse dance sector and celebrate Chicago’s role as an international dance capital. DanceBuilders’ donations support SCD’s operating fund, buoying ongoing programs such as Chicago Dance Month, Moving Dialogs, and Community Convenings, underscoring our commitment to racial equity, and helping to sustain our small but mighty staff. By joining this special giving circle, you help See Chicago Dance empower artists, build community, promote equity, grow audiences, and advocate for the field. We hope you will join us in making the Chicago dance community stronger, together.

By joining DanceBuilders, you will play a vital role in the livelihood and growth of sector-enhancing programs. Elevate the Chicago dance community by completing your membership here.
