THE HAPPINESS CLUB is a free performing arts education program for Chicago’s youth. Kids, from 8-18, become proficient in voice, dance and rap, while developing strong communication skills and self confidence. Chicago’s favorite hip hop kids base their original musical show on issues they feel strongly about, like tolerance, education, high self-esteem, and even the pandemic…always encouraging positive values and social change.

The Happiness Club keeps kids off the streets by providing a safe environment to explore social issues through the arts. Creating a sense of belonging to an artistic community acts as a dynamic alternative to gang involvement, and a busy performance schedule ensures that THE HAPPINESS CLUB reaches thousands of kids and their families each year.

See the kids in action!
