Donations made on behalf of Dancing With The Giordano Stars contestants support Giordano Dance Chicago in two main ways:
Jazz Dance/Science & Health, our signature arts integration program in four under-resourced Chicago Public Schools, is now in its 14th year and is provided free of charge to participating schools and students. This program serves 450 elementary school children in 300 classes each year. 
General operations cover a variety of expenses related to the organization's livelihood including dancer salaries, workshop scholarships, performance production and dance education.
