Chicago Tap Theatre presents Tap Secret! a brand-new dance-theater experience featuring tap dance and live music at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts. In Tap Secret!, it’s the 90s and pop music is under attack. Young sound engineer Paulie is inspired by a rhythm he hears. Can Paulie’s rhythm save the music industry? The new original story was conceived by JC Brooks, with assistance from director Mike Weaver and choreographer Mark Yonally and features an original score by Brooks. Tap Secret! will be the feel-good show of the summer, bringing us back to the 90's with live theatre and tap dance.

Summer Intensive focusing on Choreography
This program will focus on honing students' choreography skills. Each day, students will participate in technique classes with their level, but the majority of each day's time will be spent developing works of choreography that reflects their ideas and aesthetic, and helps them find their own authentic voice as choreographers. Students will leave this Intensive with a greater understanding of who they are and what they care about and how that impacts their creations as artists.
