THE ON BROADWAY DANCERS were established on 1988 with the hopes of giving rural young people an equal opportunity in performing arts. Auditions are held annually during the last week of July.

Since their debut, the dancers have developed into a sought after Company with a solid reputation for skill and talent.
They have performed during the half-time for the CHICAGO BULLS, DEPAUL, ISU, NIU,
LOYOLA, NORTHWESTERN , CHICAGO ROCKERS to name a few. They have been featured on BOZO'S CIRCUS, WLS-TV CHICAGO SHOWCASE, and DECATUR CELEBRATION. For the past thirteen years they have been on the performance venue at TASTE OF CHICAGO and previously 10 years at DEARBORN GARDEN WALK. They have also been invited to perform on several occasions with the nationally renowned JESSE WHITE TUMBLERS.
The ON BROADWAY DANCERS have performed abroad in the SOVIET UNION (1990), FRANCE and SWITZERLAND (1995), AUSTRIA and GERMANY (1999), ITALY, AUSTRIA, and SWITZERLAND (2003) and ITALY, AUSTRIA, and GERMANY (2008) as well as POLAND, AUSTRIA and GERMANY (2016) to capacity crowds.
