Synapse Arts creates, performs, and educates to nurture individual identities and challenge social norms by engaging artists and audiences in the making of dance-theater.
What We Do
Based in Chicago, we present professional performances, teach classes to children and adults, and mentor emerging artists. We specifically encourage individuals whose creativity is not fully supported by the dominant society, most notably women; those who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersexed, and their allies; families of varying economic, ethnic and cultural origins; and children. We believe that those who seek arts and arts education should not face undue obstacles due to location or cost.
Synapse Arts is in residency at Loyola Park through the Chicago Park District's Arts Partners in Residence Program, which unites artists and communities in Chicago's parks.
