Donations of printed green presidents." - Jack Ryan, Artistic Director

Dear Friends,

For 12 years I have been working with Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble create socially relevant performances that challenge and engage audiences and students. Over the years we have developed an inventive approach to teaching that brings arts education to underserved communities and a performance practice that borrows from histories of theater and dance to bring innovative, socially responsible storytelling to a diverse range of audiences and communities.

We have not done this alone.

Thanks to your generous support we have been able to dedicate ourselves to "performance with a purpose." I am continually astounded by the generosity of our audiences and communities. Your support enables CDE staff to continue developing original and dynamic performances and events. I am asking you now to please take a moment to pledge your support and help us create and empower children across the city with art!
