THE STORY:

Moving Forward with MUNTU…Celebrating 45 Years of Excellence in Authentic African Dance in Chicago!   


The 2017-2018 Season marks the 45th anniversary of Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago--making it the oldest, continuously operating, and foremost respected African Dance company. 

From our founding in 1972 by Alyo Tolbert to present day, Muntu has produced and presented thousands performances, dazzled over 350,000 audience members, educated and empowered nearly 50,000 students throughout Chicago, across the country and abroad.  Staying true to our core values—Authenticity, Service, and Quality—Muntu continues to share “the essence of the human spirit” in every concert, classroom, and conversation to celebrate the unique contributions of the African diaspora and our shared human stories. As we embark upon this celebratory year, we invite you to partner with us in a few intentional  ways:  

Make a Donation to ourFund It Forward: 45 Alive Campaign!” 

This year, we have launched an ambitious campaign to raise $45,000 in 45 days! We are planning an exciting year of performances, community events, and educational opportunities to celebrate our 45th Anniversary, and we need your help to make it all possible. Your financial support will enable us to not only celebrate the long and storied history of a Chicago treasure, but also ensure Muntu will continue to survive and thrive for years to come.  


Share your favorite “Memory of Muntu” We would love to hear how Muntu Dance Theatre has impacted your life and your favorite concerts, choreography, or important events that we have been able to share with you throughout the years. Your story will become a part of the Muntu Memory Wall which will be displayed throughout our 45th Anniversary Celebration.     


Please join us for this exciting year of celebration, reflection, and regeneration as we look back on Muntu’s past accomplishments and our continued growth!
