About Us

It is our responsibility to educate ourselves and those around us about the true nature and history of tap dance. #RespectTheDance

The Legacy

M.A.D.D. Rhythms focuses on the unsung founders of tap. We want to tell the stories of the things they endured to make this art form possible.

The Cypher

Every time M.A.D.D. Rhythms connects on the wood, we circle up and honor the roots of tap dance: improvisation.

The Vision

M.A.D.D. Rhythms teaches tap dance as a musical form of expression. We empower every dancer to create, not imitate.
