A Great Big THANK YOU!

thank-you1It is with a great debt of gratitude, strong sense of accomplishment and extreme humility that I extend this heartfelt “Thank You” to each and every one who made “The Return of the Chicago Tap Summit” and “Chicago: Sole Sounds of the Windy City” a resounding success! For 3 days straight, we immersed ourselves in the history, culture and rhythms of tapdance and came away with a renewed commitment to the legacy of the “HOOFERS”
