Chicago Human Rhythm Project builds community through American tap and contemporary percussive arts in world class, innovative performance, education and outreach programs. Percussive dance is one of the oldest forms of human expression and tap dance is America's contribution to this ancient art. CHRP celebrates the primal impulse to make rhythm and presents programs throughout the year that bring diverse communities together to share this common experience. CHRP presents four annual performance/education programs at venues including the MCA, the Harris Theater, the historic Jazz Showcase, the Pritzker Pavilion and the Fine Arts Building! CHRP's resident performance and education ensemble - BAM! - provides after school arts education classes CPS elementary schools and performs its acclaimed lecture demonstration - We All Got Rhythm - throughout Chicago which has been seen by more than 60,000 school children. We dance together - we create together - we are moving forward - together!
