The FootworKINGz (FWK) is a professional ensemble featuring Chicago’s top footworkers. They range from ages 16-24 and represent the essence of strength, raw talent, extreme energy, and power. FWK’s ensemble includes Artistic Director Charles “King Charles” Parks and Trevell “TeeJay the Boss” Johnson, who is the lead choreographer on this project. Footworking is an extremely energized, lower body movement that evolved as a response to House and Juke, both popular and distinctly Chicago styles of street dancing.

FWK members have toured with Madonna and appeared on national television in both America’s Got Talent and America’s Best Dance Crew. They have performed in New York City, San Francisco, Paris, Orlando and Las Vegas among other cities around the world. More about them with lots of cool stuff can be found at their website.
