The Bataille Dance Company started as a group of 14 members in the 1980’s who performed at local events in the Chicagoland area. Today, we have over 100 dancers who perform, compete and participate in fundraisers for the community.
The company focuses on jazz, hip-hop and musical theater dance techniques at performances. Company members participate in core ballet, jazz and tap classes along with participating in the company, in addition to other choreography practices. Company members attend two competitions, two workshops and perform at community and charity events.
The Bataille Dance Company is a great opportunity for students who are looking to perform more than once a year in the Spring Recital. Members have plenty of opportunities to showcase their dance skills and stage presence, including the participation in Youth Dance workshops with guest instructors from across the country.
In the past, The Bataille Dance Company has performed at Barrington Cruise nights, Grove Carnival, The Mani a Mani Gala, Great America, Navy Pier, Disney World, Myrtle Beach, and Mrs. America Pagaent
