Chicago's Premier Dance Education Organization

Forward Momentum Chicago inspires possibilities through dance education programs that strengthen schools and communities with limited arts access. Programs are designed to increase dance skills and awareness, and to foster creativity, critical thinking, and social-emotional learning. From classroom residencies to formal studio training, Forward Momentum Chicago offers a variety of dance experiences for all ages and ability levels. Dance is much more than dance. Our programs develop character, confidence, and leadership skills.

FMC's Performance group brough high energy and big smiles in a performance that paid tribute to New Orleans bounce music. Hosted by LUMA8 with over 4,000 participants from 90 arts organizations, this was the 9th and most successful parade yet. Visit ABC's coverage here.
