About Us
Chicago Human Rhythm Project (CHRP) presents percussive arts in performance, education, and community development programs throughout Chicago throughout the year. CHRP opened the Mayfair Arts Center (MAC) in 2022 as a public-facing arts center providing education programs for children, teens, adults, elders, and the professional arts community. The MAC also serves as an incubator for nonprofit companies and independent artists while preserving the legacy of the Sutton family's Mayfair Academy, which provided arts education and performances to the South Side of Chicago for 63 years. Rhythm World is the oldest and most comprehensive education and performance festival in the United States dedicated to American tap. Now in its fourth decade, Rhythm World continues to explore the boundaries of education and performance in relation to the history of tap dance and the needs of the contemporary community.
