Our Goal: To inspire Confidence, Health, and Joy through all the stages of your life.

Our Mission: Through dance, fitness, and community we empower ALL women to believe they are strong, beautiful, and worthy of attention.

Hip Circle has done some pretty amazing things over the last 14 years, and I will forever be proud of the community we’ve developed. There is power in women coming together and focusing on themselves, what they CAN do, and taking care of each other. From the earliest days with classes scattered around the Chicago area, to the time when we inhabited spaces on Washington & Howard Streets in Evanston, to today when we connect online, one thing has been confirmed: Our students are awesome.

With the shift back to “normal after the pandemic” (which is still here), we’ve seen our numbers dwindle. While we still firmly believe in our mission and in the value we provide, the fact is that we no longer have the resources to continue to offer classes and community as we have been so Hip Circle Empowerment Center will be closing as of December 26, 2022.

All funds from ongoing merchandise sales will be used towards final closing costs for the non-profit. Any remaining funds will be donated to a like-minded non-profit organization.
