M.A.D.D. Rhythms
Recommended Grades: K–5
M.A.D.D. RHYTHMS is a phenomenal tapdance collective whose “sole” purpose is to spread the love and joy of tap worldwide. What started as Bril Barrett & Martin Dumas, III’s formula for giving back is now a full-fledged performing arts company, quickly gaining a reputation for representing the true essence of tap: rhythm. The company is composed of young, versatile tap dancers from all over Chicago. Their ages range from 13 to 42, and their backgrounds are as equally diverse. The one thing they all have in common is a love for “the dance.”
