Ruth Page Legacy Gala

  • The Ruth Page Center for the Arts Celebrates 50 Years at the Ruth Page Legacy Gala

    On June 4, 2022 we honored 50 years of The Ruth Page Center for the Arts!


    Held at the beautiful Union League Club of Chicago, the night started with a cocktail reception in President’s Hall and continued with an evening of dancing, dining, and donating in the Lincoln Ballroom! The evening featured energetic performances by the Ruth Page Civic Ballet Training Company, the Ruth Page School of Dance advanced students, and the Keystone Dance Academy. To conclude the celebration, the guests had a chance to show off moves of their own for dancing with DJ Lady D! It was a night enjoyed by all.

    We were proud to raise funds specifically in support of the Keystone Dance Academy. The program, which is an extension of our internationally recognized School of Dance, provides high-level dance training and mentorship in the Englewood community of Chicago.

    Thank you, from all of us, for those who attended the Legacy Gala and made the night such a joy and a success. If you would still like to support The Ruth Page Center and the Keystone Dance Academy, please donate here.


    Save the date for the 2023 Ruth Page Legacy Gala: May 20, 2023.
