Founded in 2008, the International Dance Embassy is a non-profit organization working to broaden appreciation of world dance and music forms and help local artists sustain their cultural traditions, building bridges of cultural understanding. Chicago Music and Dance International’s vision is to work with artists, organizations and communities, to advance cultural understanding, and to achieve universal appreciation and support of the world’s diverse music and dance traditions as a vital and essential part of daily life. Prominent Harvard professor Robert Putnam has written that “the central challenge for modern, diversifying societies is to create a new, broader sense of we.” He advises that “to strengthen shared identities, we need more opportunities for meaningful interaction across ethnic lines where Americans (new and old) work, learn, recreate, and live.” Join us in creating unique opportunities to see and experience the music and dance traditions of the world. With your support, we will continue to present performances, classes, and dialogues that encourage the exploration and celebration of diverse cultural expressions. Together we can strengthen our cultural community and sustain over 100 distinct music and dance forms and the artists who keep them alive.
