WINTER TAP JAMBOREE


Feb. 28–March 1 Season Opener Features Chicago Premiere of
Award-Winning Tap Documentary CHICAGO—The Chicago Human Rhythm Project (CHRP ), the
world's only year-round presenter of American tap dance and contemporary percussive arts, opens its 19th season with its annual Winter Tap JAMboree February 28–March 1, 2009 at the
Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St. in Chicago. Directed by CHRP
Associate

Director Martin "Tre" Dumas, the weekend features a Winter
Workshop of master classes, Leo Harris Tap Scholarship audition and
the Chicago premiere of the award-winning documentary The
Wonder Kids.


Written, produced and directed by Jim Petersen and
Pamela J. Richardson, The Wonder Kids is the inspiring
story of a tiny dance studio that set out to save the art
form of tap dancing, which not only produced many of the world's
greatest dancers, but transformed the lives of thousands of
inner-city kids in the process. Narrated by legendary hoofer Dick Van Dyke
and featuring Savion Glover, Debbie Allen, Jason Samuels Smith and other
tap greats, the film earned the prestigious Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the New York International Film and Video Festival in 2008.


The Chicago premiere of this inspiring film takes place

Saturday, February 28 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12; proceeds
benefit

CHRP's Leo Harris Tap Scholarship program.

On both Saturday and Sunday, February 28 and March 1,

CHRP will host its Winter Workshop, a series of 21 classes at the intermediate, advanced and professional levels.

Instructorsinclude Tony nominee and Chicago native Ted Levy, who is
CHRP's

2009 Artist in Residence; CHRP Associate Director, Mayfair
Academy alumnus and Jus'LisTeN Director Martin "Tre" Dumas; Dianne
"Lady Di" Walker, who was recently named a U.S. Artists Fellow;
Idella Reed of the Sammy Dyer School of Theater and Dance;
independent New York City artist Lisa La Touche; and Ashley DeForest,
formerly of Savion Glover's company and director of DeForest Dance
Academy. In honor of African-American History Month, the instructors
will focus on the music of Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Count Basie,
Oscar Peterson and Miles Davis.

Classes are $25 each plus a $15 registration fee.

A detailed schedule and registration form
are available at
