Chicago Multicultural Dance Center (CMDC) is a performing arts organization that is committed to giving the highest quality dance education to it’s community and celebrating the diversity of our students and families. The Hiplet Ballerinas is a professional dance company that you may have seen in viral videos. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we need your ongoing help to keep our programming going.
Here at CMDC we believe in the power of the performing arts to get us through these difficult times. The performing arts have shown over and over again to spark hope during the toughest of times and inspire us to keep moving forward. During COVID we have found our mission to be more important now than ever before. Dance heals us, brings us together, and lets us escape into new realities and worlds while our current world may be uncertain. We want to continue to foster creativity, give your children the best dance education possible, and instill hope through the power of movement to our community. To continue to do this we need your help.
The COVID-19 pandemic has prevented us from being able to operate at full capacity. Classes are only allowed to have 33% capacity, and the Hiplet performing tour has been postponed until there is a vaccine. In short - our overall revenue has dropped by more than 75%.
As we continue the journey forward through this pandemic together we need help sustaining for the long term. Recently CMDC hosted our annual recital in person, socially distanced. For a moment the students were able to experience the magic of performance. The recital was extremely successful and we are grateful to have been able to perform live in person with our students.
We ask that you give what you can and are sincerely grateful for your generous continued support and gifts. If you are willing and able to donate even just $5 can go a long way. For more information visit CMDC website www.cmdcschool.org.
