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 & The Chicago Bulls

We are thrilled to announce that this year, Bulls Entertainment has partnered with The Happiness Club for in-game entertainment at select games throughout the 2022-23 season. Through the partnership, the Bulls will use its platform to amplify The Happiness Club’s goal of positioning art as a vehicle for self-expression and societal change, empowering youth to pursue their passion for performance and become positive activists in their community through art. This exciting new partnership demonstrates the Bulls’ commitment to providing underserved youth across Chicago access to opportunities for personal and professional growth – a core pillar of the team’s community violence prevention strategy.

Thank you @chicagobulls!

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!
