FootworKingz

The FootworKINGz (FWK) are an astounding ensemble that represent an extraordinary urban dance, now globally recognized as “Chicago Footwork.” This technique is an extreme, lower body movement that evolved as a response to Chicago’s House, Ghetto House and speedy Juke music styles. FWK was founded in 2007 by Chicago native Choreographer & Hip Hop Educator, Leida “Lady Sol” Garcia.  Lady Sol began as a dancer in the 90’s who traveled and worked with musical artists & choreographers such as Twista, Busta Rhymes, Lauryn Hill, Heavy D., Bounty Killer, Dancehall Queen Patra, Fatima Robinson, Big Lez, and Caleaf Sellers.
