TOP ILLINOIS DANCE CAMP: Dream Big Performing Arts Workshop is a Top Dance Summer Camp located in Chicago Illinois offering many fun and enriching Dance and other camp programs. Dream Big Performing Arts Workshop also offers CIT/LIT and/or Teen Leadership Opportunities, too.

CAMP LOCATION: We are located in the center of Andersonville on the north side of Chicago at the First Free Church on the corner of Berwyn and Ashland. We are just 7 minutes north of Wrigley Field and close to the Red Line, the Brown Line, Metra and several CTA bus lines.

CAMP FACILITIES: We run our camps in a beautiful and bright air-conditioned performance space. We are a half a block down from an enclosed park where we take snack breaks each day for unstructured play time with friends.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Dream Big was the winner of the 2013 Red Tricycle Most Awesome Award for Theater and Dance Classes in Chicago. It's no surprise due to our talented staff of teaching artists who are all trained professional actors, directors, choreographers and/or playwrights. Their passion for teaching children in the performing arts is contagious and our campers' delight throughout the week culminates in their confident performances at the end of each week.

Camps are geared towards age groups 3-18 and our creative themes range from Dragons, Monsters and Creepy Creatures and Fairy Tales Weeks, to Annie Camp, Improv Week, Musical Theater and countless others! We believe in the power of the arts through collaboration and ensemble-building. All of our classes and camps foster creativity, self-expression and teamwork.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: We invite 3-6th graders to be counselors in training at half the price and 7-12th graders as volunteer teaching interns. This is a great experience for children and young adults to take on a leadership role with younger campers and gain teaching experience under trained and experienced teaching artists.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Partial Need-Based Scholarships are available. Please inquire.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: We run drama programs (classes, camps, workshops and production experiences) for all ages 2-18 year round. Classes include musical theater, improv, story drama, scene study, creative drama and more.

OTHER CAMP INFO: In addition to our one-week drama camps, we are also offering Suessical, Jr, a 4-week, full-day production camp! This is the perfect opportunity for young actors entering 2-8th grades to sharpen their skills and work with professional actors and directors on a full-length musical on the Main Stage of the Athenaeum Theatre.
