Ways to Give

Hubbard Street could not have become the company it is today without individuals and organizations supporting our vision.

Your support allows Hubbard Street to perform throughout the year in Chicago and around the globe. We work every day in the public schools with students and teachers to use the choreographic process to invoke creativity and engage students in learning. We’ve created the Hubbard Street Parkinson’s Project, which uses contemporary dance to improve patients’ mobility and dexterity. And we collaborate with other leading cultural institutions like the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and The Second City to help people look at art, movement and music in a different light. None of this is possible without your support.

In return for your gift, we are pleased to offer opportunities to mingle with the artists, see rehearsals of new work and experience the company like never before.
