About Audible Odyssey

Audible Odyssey

Audible Odyssey is an organization that not only produces great tap shows but helps in the development of great tap dancers and careers. Glory days of the MGM big picture show and Gregory Hines as a household name may be gone, but we are dedicated to finding out what our generation’s equivalent will be. It’s time for a tap dance renaissance.


CHOREOGRAPHERS


chicago-starAudible Odyssey believes that the development of individual tap dance artists is the backbone of the revitalization of tap dance in Chicago. The next generation of tap dance choreographers, directors, and game-changers is here in Chicago and we are here to provide a forum for their voices to be heard.

CONTINUING EDUCATION


shedFor us, the education of tap dance artists goes beyond taking class. Ok, so part of it is about taking class (it always has been and always will be and we like it that way) but we see this coming together as more than just an opportunity to work on technique – it’s an opportunity to create community. By strengthening the tap community in Chicago, we are making it a destination for tap dancers.

HEALTH + WELLNESS


h+wWe believe that taking care of your body and having the knowledge to attend to it when something goes wrong is all a part of living the professional life. We provide health and wellness support to tap dancers in any way we can. By partnering with podiatrists, physical therapists, and other health professionals, we are be able to improve the longevity of tap dancers bodies and careers – yours and ours.

AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT


shoutOur outlook on audience development is this: without an audience that is emotionally invested in tap dance, the art form cannot remain relevant to contemporary society and therefore, has the potential to disappear. Using an inviting and flexible approach to presentation, we are growing the audience for tap dance, not just by numbers, but also by the depth of their emotional involvement.
