The Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University presents the culminating performance of the city-wide Chicago Rhythm Fest, a showcase of events, mini-concerts and panel discussions celebrating the diversity of the percussive arts, highlighting five of the city’s premier dance groups. Led by Chicago Human Rhythm Project (CHRP), the finale performance reimagines CHRP’s inaugural National Tap Dance Day concert 25 years ago with an eclectic program featuring Ensemble Español Spanish Dance Theater, Mexican Dance Ensemble, Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago, Trinity Irish Dance Company, as well as Chicago Human Rhythm Project in concert on May 13th.

“Chicago has a long and venerable history when it comes to the percussive arts,” said Auditorium Theatre Executive Director Brett Batterson. “We’re excited to host five of the country’s best ambassadors of the art form in one night, a chance to present an extraordinary range of talent and diversity. Each of these companies brings a unique cultural perspective to the art form, and the juxtaposition of each over the course of an evening will be fascinating and informative.”
