Artistic Director

Venetia Stifler - Emmy-nominated choreographer and director, is the Executive and Artistic Director of The Ruth Page Center for the Arts, guiding the vision of the organization left to Chicago by the dance icon and pioneer Ruth Page. Ms. Stifler is also the Artistic Director of CDI/Concert Dance Inc., the official contemporary dance company of the Ruth Page Center, which performs choreography by Ms. Stifler and other leading contemporary artists while also exploring and re-envisioning Ms. Page's work. Upon her death in 1991, Ruth Page left behind a rich artistic legacy that included a school of dance, archival library, theater, offices for arts groups, groundbreaking choreography, and The Ruth Page Center for the Arts. A commitment to meeting the needs of the Chicago dance community led to a re-focus and re-organization of the Ruth Page Center in 1999, resulting in the Executive Director position and renewed life for the organization. Since becoming its Executive and Artistic Director in 2000, Ms. Stifler has helped to bring into greater focus the Ruth Page Center's mission of ensuring that children and dance artists have a place to study, work and perform at the highest level of excellence. Ms. Stifler's re-envisioned production of Ruth Page's groundbreaking 1947 "ballet carton" Billy Sunday came alive again in 2007 with several stage productions and in the PBS documentary produced by HMS Media. A two-year project, Billy Sunday not only brought this masterpiece work to new audiences, but also garnered several Emmy nominations from The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Instead of giving someone a single gift, how about a year’s worth? When your friend or family member accesses information throughout the year, they will be reminded of your thoughtfulness. Also, it's a great last-minute present idea that doesn't require you to leave the house.
