Youth Dance

We offer a variety of classes to suit all ages 3 years and up, including, creative movement, hip hop, ballet, tap, jazz, poms, lyrical, contemporary, choreography and company dance. Dance does so many things to enrich our lives. It can instill confidence, improve flexibility and balance, develop rhythm, create a sense of freedom to express one’s self, provide an outlet for socialization, and enhance memorization skills to name a few of its benefits.

2021 Dance Classes

The Morton Grove Park District runs a variety of dance classes during the school year. Classes are held at the Prairie View Community Center, 6834 Dempster Street, Morton Grove.

New this year: we are offering a mini fall session of dance. This gives you the perfect opportunity to have your child try out dance for the first time.

Our mini sessions will start in September. Session 2 of all classes will then run from October through May and will include a performance in the annual dance recital. Costume fee is also included.

Information on all our classes will be out in our Fall Activity Guide mailed to the residents sometime in August.

Summer is the perfect time to try a new form of dance or continue in your progression of technique. These mini-sessions provide dancers the opportunity to try different dance forms without the time and expense of the full year.

The summer session concludes with an informal “Summer Showcase” for dancers to perform for families and friends at Harrer Park Shelter. 2021 Date: Wednesday, August 11 at 6:45 pm.
