High-tops meet taps in the Chicago Human Rhythm Project’s annual celebration of National Tap Dance Day. The all-male, high-voltage FootworKINGz will make an appearance delivering the furious, foot-flying, floor-scorching moves that have garnered the crew national press and two members appearances with Madonna both on video and on tour. Also making a CHRP debut is Trae Turner’s Boom Crack! Dance Company (named after the way Turner counts down and off beats), a group that moves in hip-hop styles across the spectrum. Add to the bill CHRP hoofing virtuoso regulars M.A.D.D. Rhythms, Tre Dumas and BAM! and you’ve got a show that will make you bounce in your seat and shout. Which is fully encouraged. (Sharon Hoyer)
