About Us

Who Are We?

Urbanity Dance Chicago is a woman-owned dance studio for adults founded in 2019 that strives to cultivate individuality, creative expression, and connection through the Afro-Latin partner dances & urban solo dance styles.

What makes us different?

Urbanity works hard to create a safe, inclusive, judgement-free space for everyone to feel welcome in regardless of age, race, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Gender and masculine/feminine have been dissociated from the lead/follow roles in partner dance and solo styling in hopes of encouraging students to dance what they want, how they want!Our instructors come from a wide variety of training backgrounds, allowing us to take the best of all worlds and combine it into one! Our curriculum structure and teaching methods reflect that. They are unique and constantly evolving to ensure that quality & fun are equally valued at every level.Ask a student or staff member about Urbanity and you will hear...
  • “comfortable”
  • “connected”
  • “a friendly and supportive environment”
  • “a perfect balance of discipline and creativity”
Our staff is passionate, our students are family, and we are truly welcoming to ALL.

“Connect. Express. Vibe” is our checklist for success.

Connect with individuals who share your passion for dance, music, & life.Express yourself freely through movement with your own personal style.Vibe out & de-stress from the daily grind. We hope you join us soon!

We hope you join us soon!
