Circle Up is a footwork summer camp operating on the south and east sides of Chicago offered to over 100 youth dancers at no charge in 2019. Participants learn to footwork as they explore dance history, video-making, costume design and DJing with top Chicago artists. This summer, Circle Up also includes performance opportunities for youth at "Dance Downs in the Park", hosted in collaboration with the Chicago Park District, and at the 4th Annual Chicago House Music Festival in collaboration with the Department of Cultural Affairs. Circle Up is coordinated with on-the-ground leadership from dance groups Bringing Out Talent, The Era and Empire.
