FootworKINGz Aids Walk Chicago Performance. Filmed / Edited by BRAZILIONAIRE (Brazilionaire Entertainment and Siqnez Studios.)








The Chicago FootworKINGz (FWK) is an all-star dance ensemble featuring the best of Chi-Towns footwork battle champs including members from local crews Creation and Heat Squad.

FWK was founded in 2007 by Leida Lady Sol Villegas as a professional dance company and website seeking to attract global recognition to footworkin, a unique, Chicago born dance style. Footworkin evolved in the Black community as a response to House and Juke music (a sound developed from House music sped up to 160bpm). This movement has been around for over 20 years and we want it to be exposed in the mainstream and all over the world, says King Charles, co-artistic director of the FootworKINGz.

Members of FWK have been featured on Ellens Really Big Show for TBS, VH-1 Hip Hop Honors 07 Honoring Missy Elliott, WGCI and Power 92 radio, Chicago Tribune, WGN Morning News, Rolling Stone Magazines 2007 Hot Issue, Verizon Wireless Do The Juke phone commercial, Dude En Ems Watch My Feet music video and MTVs My Block Chicago.

One of our biggest goals is to help produce and release a documentary film about footworkin with special attention to the stories behind the youths who live for this movement, states Ms. Villegas, manager of the FootworKINGz.

FWK has been featured on many stages including the opening ceremony for the 2007 World Boxing Championships in the presence of Muhammad Ali, the 2007 San Francisco Hip Hop Dance Festival, Best of Dance Chicago 2007, the Coliseum at Caesars Palace in Vegas with Ellen Degeneres, opening for Chris Brown at the UIC Pavilion, WGCIs Schools Out Jump Off, with Miss Teefa, the Chicago Cultural Center, the Uptown Unity Fest with Kuumba Lynx, and Silver Rooms 5th Annual Block Party.
