BAM! on Tour

Chicago Human Rhythm Project's resident performing and teaching ensemble has an extensive repertory including the classics, contemporary jazz tap and experimental rhythmic expression like body drumming. Technical virtuosity and passion are the hallmarks of the company which never fails to engage and surprise the most seasoned theater audiences.

The group was created in 2004 as a choreographic project with funding from the Chicago Dancemakers Forum  and an Illinois Arts Council Choreography Fellowship and has since performed at the 5th Anniversary Beijing International Dance Festival, the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park (with the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic), Dance For Life and San Antonio's Third Coast Rhythm Project just to name a few. BAM! has received critical accolades, standing ovations and has appeared as a part of Dance Chicago, Jubilate at the Harris Theater, the Spertus Institute and other Chicago venues. BAM! currently tours its lecture demonstration "We All Got Rhythm" to K-12 schools through Urban Gateways and has performed more than 120 shows to over 36,000 students in the last three years.

BAM! is currently on the Illinois Arts Council Artstour Artists Roster.  For more information on how to subsidize a BAM! performance in 2013, please click here.
