The Exelon Strobel Step-Up Program is a rigorous scholarship program offered to promising high school students. Named in honor of former Joffrey Board Chair Pamela B. Strobel, and long-time supporter Exelon Corporation, the group was founded in 2006 to help participants develop their dance skills and provide opportunities to showcase their talents. The group has performed at Millennium Park, Toyota Park, the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University, Dance Chicago, the DuSable Museum of African American History, and other venues throughout Chicago. Additionally, in 2010, the Government of South Africa invited a group of Exelon Strobel Step-Up students to South Africa to help promote the Diski Dance and the 2010 FIFA World Cup tournament.
