Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Are you tired of being indoors this season? Looking for some fun close to home? Join us this year at the Illinois Theatre Center every Saturday morning in January from 10:30 am to 11:30 am for the Aspire Series.

This FREE series of presentations has been created to encourage the next generation of artists and to provide a source of entertainment for those who may or may not be artistic, but enjoy the arts. Through interactive workshops that demonstrate artistic and cultural expression in various forms, Aspire strives to inspire both young and old.

Beginning Saturday, January 10th, the Chicago Human Rhythm Project comes to town.

Chicago Human Rhythm Project’s performing ensemble has an extensive repertory including the classics, contemporary jazz tap and experimental yet accessible rhythmic expression like body drumming. Technical virtuosity and passion are the hallmarks of the company which never fails to engage and surprise the most seasoned theater audiences.

The group was created in 2004 as a choreographic project with funding from the Chicago Dancemakers Forum and has since performed at the 5th Anniversary Beijing International Dance Festival, the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park (with the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic), and Dance For Life, just to name a few. BAM! has received critical accolades, standing ovations and has appeared as a part of Dance Chicago, Jubilate at the Harris Theater, the Spertus Institute and other Chicago venues. BAM! currently tours its lecture demonstration We All Got Rhythm to K-12 schools through Urban Gateways and has performed more than 60 shows to over 15,000 students in just over one year.

The BAM! ensemble consists of Chicago’s finest tap artists who can also be seen performing for River North Dance Chicago, Especially Tap Chicago and other companies throughout the city.

The Illinois Theatre Center is located at 371 Artists Walk in Downtown Park Forest, just steps from Village Hall. For more information, call 708.283.5624.
