M.A.D.D. Rhythms

M.A.D.D. RHYTHMS is a phenomenal TAP dance collective whose “SOLE” purpose is to spread the Love and Joy of TAP worldwide.

What started as Bril Barrett & Martin Dumas III’s formula for giving back, is now a full-fledged performing arts company, quickly gaining a reputation for representing the true essence of tap: RHYTHM! The company is composed of young, versatile tap dancers from all over Chicago. Their ages range from 18 to 47, and their backgrounds are equally diverse. The one thing they all have in common is a love for “the dance”.
Our Mission

M.A.D.D. Rhythms’ mission is to preserve, promote and contribute to this art form called tap.

We will teach its history, represent its culture and advocate for its future. We will use this beautiful dance/music form to make a difference in the underserved communities of this world by connecting and caring for the youth of this world. We believe that having access and options gives a child a greater chance at a positive life. Therefore, we will spread the joy, love, discipline and expression of tap to as many children as we humanly can!

We can't wait to welcome the DNC to Chicago and the Midwest in 2024!
