FootworkRhythmCollective is in its second season at Jo's Footwork Studio. As the premiere tap company at Jo's, FootworkRhythmCollective performs around the Chicago area in competition/conventions, at tap festivals, community events, and more!

We look forward to growth and more tap dancing in our second season!
