At Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, we bring artists, art and audiences together to enrich, engage, and change lives through the experience of dance.

We are seeking a smart, mission-driven self-starter to join Hubbard Street’s Youth Dance department.

For more advanced students, Hubbard Street has added Secondary Program camps where dancers can further develop specific technical skills and virtuosity.
