The Embodied Education Institute of Chicago believes connecting to the wisdom of the body deepens the understanding and compassion we hold towards ourselves, communities and the world. We cultivate an environment of empathy and authenticity and provide opportunity to engage in creative perspectives of dance and movement to inspire critical thought and navigation of how personal cultural identities are situated within the intersubjective realm of human connection.


All of the faculty of the Embodied Institute are professionally credentialed and experienced university teachers. They constitute Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapists, Certified Laban Movement Analysts, Movement Pattern Analysts, and more.
