FootworKINGz FootworKINGz

Acclaimed Chicago Dance Ensemble
The FootworKINGz (FWK) is an all-star specialty ensemble featuring Chicago’s top footworkers. FWK was founded in 2007 by Leida “Lady Sol” Villegas, as a professional dance ensemble with a mission to attract global recognition to Chicago’s unique style of footwork. This extreme style is dominantly a lower body movement that evolved as a response to Chicago’s House and Juke music scenes. FWK has rocked stellar performances on tour with Madonna, MTV’s “Best Dance Crew,” "America’s Got Talent", and Ellen’s “Really Big Show” (TBS). Corporate clients include Red Bull, Nike, IBM, and General Mills. FWK members King Charles and Prince Jron have performed, taught, and competed as House dance champions throughout Europe in Scandinavia, France (Juste Debout), Russia and the UK.
