M.A.D.D. Rhythms presents: Take 5


The Chicago Tap Summit; 5th Anniversary Celebration will include an array of master classes for all levels of tap dancers, along with history sessions (complete with rare footage of some of the all time greats of tap), a participants’ showcase, a panel discussion and our popular “LIVE THE HISTORY” lecture/demonstration which takes you through TAP history by the legends who lived it. The festival will wrap up with an electrifying concert “TAKE 5” featuring all faculty, guests and the M.A.D.D. Rhythms family.
