A Journey Of The Dance Through Music


M.A.D.D. Rhythms: A Journey of the Dance Through Music

From the motherland to big band. From bebop to
pop. From R&B to hip hop. As popular music has grown and changed, so has the art of tap dance.

M.A.D.D. Rhythms is proud to present this new collaborative work, conceived and directed by our Assistant Director
Star Dixon.

Premiering in the second half of our annual Chicago Tap Summit concert, we invite you to explore the different forms that tap dance has taken all the way from its roots in Africa, up to today’s contemporary styles.

WORLD PREMIER of new choreography by
Bril Barrett,Time Brickey, Tristan Bruns, Andrew Carr, Megan Davis, Star Dixon, Donnetta Jackson, and KJ Sheldon.

Each piece takes on a different era of music, celebrating the ways that the deep traditions and culture of tap dance have survived all this time.

Tickets are $30 in advance, $40 at the door for general admission, and $75 for VIP. Purchase of a VIP ticket will grant you exclusive seating, and entry to our post-show reception.

Doors open at 8pm, with the performance beginning at 8:30pm.
