Chicago Human Rhythm Project

Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art hosts Chicago Human Rhythm Project (CHRP) this weekend for their 15th anniversary Youth Tap Ensemble Conference benefit concert as well as their performance series JUBA! Masters of Tap and Percussive Dance.  The benefit concert will take place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20.  Youth Tap Ensembles from around the country will perform, and special guest Maurice Hines will make an appearance to receive the annual JUBA! award.  At 7:30 pm, July 21-23, three unique performances will be held featuring Jumaane Taylor and M.A.D.D. Rhythms (July 21 and 23), CHRP’s resident company, BAM! (July 21 and 23), Groundhog (July 22) and Linda Sohl Ellison (July 22).

The first in the world to present tap dance year-round, CHRP is proud of the distinctly American heritage of its art form.  Popularized on Broadway and by figures such as Shirley Temple and Fred Astaire, tap is an accessible, high energy, and entertaining dance form that all can enjoy.
