SOMEONE’S TAPPING AT YOUR DOOR
LET THEM IN!

For one performance only — Sunday, July 26, at 3 p.m. — Chicago Tap Theatre (CTT) will present 30 Feet Together, 6 Feet Apart live on its streaming platforms from the historic Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago. It’s a celebration of the power and necessity of dance and live music, and a vision of how dance performances on a concert stage can be presented during this pandemic. This show includes a live jazz trio featuring funk and soul master JC Brooks as host and vocalist along with tap dancing by CTT. Admission¬†for each household is based on a pay-what-you-can sliding scale.

CTT will be observing all relevant rules and guidelines surrounding social distancing, number of people gathered and mask-wearing both in the rehearsal process and the performance itself. If Chicago and/or Illinois end up having to move back into Phase 3 or lower, then the show will be postponed to a later date and all ticket holders will be notified.

features choreography by Yonally, Kirsten Uttich, Sterling Harris, Case Prime and Rich Ashworth. Dancers include Yonally, Uttich, Jennifer Yonally, Aimee Chause, Isacc Stauffer, Harris, Prime, Molly Smith, Heather Latakas, Zoe Lesser and Bailey Caves. Joining singer and host Brooks is Kurt Schweitz (bass) and others.
