Skunkworks latest dance film mini-series.

Winter 2022

In additional to live shows, Skunkworks Performance Program members get to participate within innovative and professional films where they learn the art of dancing for the camera. This winter, Skunkworks' brought 5 Performance Program members to the beautiful Kenilworth Assembly Hall to create new video series "REcorD". 

Dancers were lead through guided improvisation as directed by Founder Jana Bennett with film concept, video and editing by Faculty Daniel Williams. This project was a true collaboration between all artistic parties present. Honoring, developing and celebrating individuality is at the heART of our Skunkworks Performance Program.. 

Zombified Dance Video

Halloween Fall 2021 - Performance Program

Every Halloween season, Skunkworks Dance Performance Program creates spooky dance special! This year Founder Jana Bennett choreographed a one-shot "Zombified Dance Video" to the popular "I Don't Wanna Talk, I Just Wanna Dance" song of the year by Glass Animals. 

This exciting, quirky and Zombie-themed dance film was shot within 2 hours within a Wilmette parking lot on a Fall overcast day. Our Performance Program members had a BLAST putting this creative film together. It was a day full of great dancing, laughs, company bonding and loads of FUN!


Reimagined for the world of today, Skunkworks Performance Program provides exceptionally innovative performance opportunities, individualized pre-professional training and a wonderful community of fellow artists. For dancers ready to level up their dance journey, this is the program they have been waiting for!

Skunkworks Dance is and has always been on the forefront of creative thinking. We are the studio with the a plan that will keep your dancer engaged and upbeat during this unprecedented time.
