Chicago Human Rhythm Project (CHRP)
CHRP was the first tap festival in the world to evolve into a year-round presenter of tap dance and continues to lead the field by presenting concerts, educational programs, year-round outreach and conferences for the field. CHRP goes beyond presenting concerts and festivals, acting as a true advocate for the art form.
Ensemble Español Spanish Dance Theater
Spanish Dance Theater in residence at Northeastern Illinois University,
was founded by Dame Libby Komaiko in 1976 to share the rich traditions
of the dance, music, literature, and culture of Spain. The company,
under the direction of Irma Suarez Ruiz, encourages artistic creativity
within the framework of the Ibero-Hispanic experience.
Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago
In the Bantu language, "muntu" means "the essence of humanity." Founded in 1972, the Chicago-based company performs authentic and progressive interpretations of contemporary and ancient African and African-American dance, music, and folklore.
Trinity Irish Dance Company
The Trinity Irish Dance Company has significantly changed the direction and scope of Irish dance, re-introducing the art form as the phenomenon it is today. Founding Artistic Director Mark Howard's uniquely Irish-American company was the birthplace of progressive Irish dance, which opened new avenues of artistic freedom that led directly to commercial productions such as "Riverdance."
