Another extraordinary evening unfolds with Star Dixon and Nico Rubio, who have grown from students of Rhythm World’s Tap Scholars program to world-renowned tap artists in their own right. So good you will want to see them twice, Stone Soup Rhythms ensemble will premiere more new works by Dani Borak; and finally, Rhythm World closes with a world premiere by Chicago’s own all female tap company Rhythm ISS, co-founded by Idella Reed-Davis, Sarah Savelli and Sharon Rushing.
JUBA! performances are on Friday, July 20 and Saturday, July 21 and both shows are completely distinct. For more information about the line-up for Friday's performance, or to purchase tickets, click here.
The JUBA! concerts are the culminating events of Chicago's prized citywide festival, Rhythm World. Rhythm World runs July 16–22 and includes scores of courses, master classes, and workshops, the 18th Annual Youth Tap Ensemble Conference, a STOMP intensive focusing on body drumming and found-object percussion, and a comprehensive Teacher Certification program.
