THE COMPANY

chicago dance company kate kablonski

Beyond Words Dance Company was established in 2009 by Artistic Director Kate Jablonski to provide a positive outlet for expression for flourishing young dancers ages 10-18. Company members train in the disciplines of ballet, jazz, lyrical, and contemporary, and are taught life lessons of teamwork, commitment, responsibility, and work ethic through the art of dance. Kate’s goal is to create a supportive environment where dancers are inspired and motivated to reach their highest potential.

Company members gain performance experience by participating in various Chicago-area events and competitions throughout the year. Beyond Words has received numerous standing ovations from Tyce Diorio, Wade Robson, and Cris Judd in addition to being noted as “brilliant” and “beyond”. The year culminates in a stunning showcase that gives dancers invaluable insight into the world of professional dance. While breaking the barriers and limitations presented in competition settings, the year-end showcase encompasses innovative and daring stage elements that challenge the dancers in a new way.

These performances have included partnerships with special effect companies that have allowed Beyond Words to dance with light (The Gallery) with Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy and even take flight (Happily Ever After) with ZFX Flying Effects during their shows. The combination of Kate’s vision and the dancers’ hard work ultimately creates unforgettable stories told through the art of dance. Each performance is sure to leave audiences beyond words. The home of Beyond Words is Foundations Performance Center in Lyons, IL.
