Annually, we proudly collaborate with community partners, such as the Walk for Alzheimer's, Junior League of Chicago at the Women's Treatment Center, CPS After School Programs and the Albany Park Community Center. In addition, Culture Shock Chicago partners with the DEA Educational Foundation Youth Dance Program to provide a free and positive alternative to drugs through the fun, healthy and expressive art form of dance. Through these amazing community collaborations, Culture Shock reaches thousands of youth and adults through instructional workshops, assembly and outreach programming and professional performances focusing on:
* Building of self-esteem and teamwork skills
* Resisting negative peer pressure
* Focusing on positive health and attitude
As always, it’s not just about the performance for us….we work twice as hard to bring dance to our youth and families in our community and we are honored to shape the next generation.
