Expanding Universe Personified

To celebrate 50 years of dance education and artistic support, The Ruth Page Center for the Arts (RPCA) is raising $50,000.00 USD – one thousand dollars for every year of growth. With your help we can ensure 50 more years of excellence.

We are asking a few of our key partners to rally their friends, family, and networks to support our work. By becoming a fundraiser for RPCA you will help more dance artists in Chicago, and you'll help your friends feel good about doing good. Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference.

About the Campaign:

In 1971, having already established herself as an internationally acclaimed dancer, choreographer, and arts patron, Ruth Page created an arts center and school of dance where artistic excellence could thrive. The Ruth Page Center for the Arts (RPCA) stands today as an example of how far her legacy has grown. 50 years since its founding, RPCA has become home to a vibrant Artists In-Residence program and a comprehensive theater performance space. It consistently provides performance and professional opportunities to the next generation of dance artists and world-class training with a strong focus on international partnerships. The arts organizations who work and create here, and the artists who train and perform here, together are truly representative of Ruth Page’s iconic work, Expanding Universe, created in collaboration with artist Isamu Noguchi. This is our inspiration and sets the tone for 50 more years of excellence in artmaking. RPCA has broadened the initial vision of Ruth Page, and continues to push the boundaries of dance and artistic development here in Chicago and beyond.

Your gift will go towards supporting dance teachers, accompanists, and subsidized instruction for students in need, in addition to artistic development programs such as the Keystone Dance Academy, Artists In-Residence, Subsidized Theater and Studio Rental, International Dance Experience, and The Ruth Page Civic Ballet Training Company.

The mission of The Ruth Page Center for the Arts is to “Be a platform for developing great artists and connecting them with audiences and community.”
