“During my time here, I’ve learned so much I never thought I could in just one year.”
Jenna, Contempo student, Age 13

New for SUMMER 2014—2 week dance intensive runs July 14-July 25th.
This summer will focus on serious, experienced dance students who want to take their training to the next level. Contempo Director, Kimberly Kovacevich, will personally facilitate all summer classes. Dancers aspiring to be a member of the 2014-2015 junior or senior performing companies must attend at least 1 week (2 hours per day for 5 days per week) of the intensive, as company members will be selected only from those in attendance. For more information on summer dance, see our SUMMER 2014 Schedule.

No beginner classes will be offered this summer. Our regular academic year class offerings for all levels, ages 2-Adult, will resume on August 18th. The 2014-2015 academic year schedules and recommendations for current students will be available for pick-up and registration at the studio during summer dance intensive weeks.


“Contempo Dance Academy in Lisle is by far the best instruction my daughter has received in Jazz, Hip Hop and Ballet. Teachers care about teaching proper technique and proper terminology to all levels of study, even the very young dancers. High quality dance instruction at very reasonable prices.”
Rebecca, Contempo parent

Contempo provides amazing opportunities for dance students who want to take their dance training to the next level.  In addition to regularly studying with committed, professional faculty members who have both excellent academic and performing credentials, our dancers have opportunities to study with renowned guest instructors and to share their talents with our community.  In past years, you may have seen us dance at Grounds for Hope, the Eyes to the Skies festival, holiday parades, and the Lights of Lisle celebration.

Pictured above, Contempo’s advanced ballet students had the opportunity to train with Katie Martin, principal dancer with Ballet Idaho and star of the CW network’s ballet reality series, “Breaking Pointe.”

We welcome new students and their families to share in the fun of learning to dance! Please contact the Academy to schedule a trial/evaluation class. Also, see our private dance lessons and dance birthday party page for other fun opportunities to begin dance instruction or to rent our facility!
