Forum Dance Theatre

“Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul.” ~ Plato

Forum Dance Theatre is a 501(c)3 youth dance ensemble within Talent Forum of Libertyville, Illinois

Forum Dance Theatre began with only 5 members in an in-studio performance at Talent Forum. The Company has grown one of the Midwest’s best pre-professional training programs, and today has nearly 50 members, three divisions, an artistic staff of four, an administrative staff of five, and over 50 volunteers.

Artistic Director Kimberly Fletcher-Stibal’s mission for Forum is to serve as a catalyst for young, aspiring artists to envision, expand and collaborate on dance works which challenge the artistic depth and creativity that are involved in Contemporary dance. With national and international performances to their credit, Forum is known for their discipline and excellence among their students.
