SummerDance Downs in the Park will return to Chicago Park District locations this summer, co-presented with Open the Circle. Dance downs showcase black youth dance groups from across the city. Today's dance groups are famous for their performances at the Bud Billiken Parade and other parades across the city and beyond. Several groups travel nationally to perform, winning awards and recognition from television programs like Bring It!, while instilling community, leadership and self–confidence in Chicago youth. Dance Downs in the Park are organized in partnership with leading companies The Era Footwork Crew, Empiire and Bringing Out Talent. Music is provided by "the youngest in charge" DJ Corey and his father DJ Clent, godfather of footwork music and juke in Chicago.
