Open the Circle and The Era Footwork Crew present a Chicago-style “dance down”, a showcase of black youth dance groups from across the city. Today's dance groups are famous for their performances at the Bud Billiken Parade, and at other parades across the city and beyond. Several groups travel nationally to perform, winning awards and recognition from television programs like Bring It!, while instilling community, leadership and self-confidence in Chicago youth.
This dance down features the following groups: The Era Footwork Crew, Bringing Out Talent, Empiire Dance Company, Geek Skquad and Final Alert.
Music is provided by "the youngest in charge" DJ Corey, and his father DJ Clent, godfather of footwork music and juke in Chicago.
Location is at Cloud Gate Plaza, otherwise known as The Bean.
