Inspire & Empower

Swing for Kids inspires and empowers students through Swing Dance.

Kids need the opportunity to move, people to motivate them, and fun ways to gain powerful new skills in school. Throughout the Swing for Kids program, students learn essential skills like goal setting, emotion & behavior management, conflict resolution, collaboration, and communication skills. Kids are engaged in learning a cool new dance skill that has it’s roots in American history, but also learn to work together better, respect each other, perform and improvise, and have a lot of fun!

Children across the nation, but especially in Chicago's urban district, which currently faces a $1 billion budget shortfall, aren't getting the access they need to high-quality in-school arts education and social-emotional learning (SEL) opportunities.  Additionally, children in Chicago are heavily affected by the state of Illinois cuts to funding for after school programs, childcare, and teen employment programs. Swing for Kids leverages its unique position as a nonprofit in the arts and SEL space with local supporters of Swing Dance to provide low and no-cost programming to Chicago's most vulnerable youth. 

Swing for Kids is a registered non-profit charitable organization, 501(c)(3), EIN 47-2545636, and receives funds from private donations, corporate sponsorship, and program fees.
