“Aisha” by Starinah “Star” Dixon for M.A.D.D. Rhythms
May 27, 2021
To celebrate National Tap Dance Day earlier this week, Chicago’s M.A.D.D. Rhythms released two new dance videos, including “Aisha,” choreographed by the group’s assistant director Starinah “Star” Dixon. To a song of the same name, written by McCoy Tyner and performed by John Coltrane, the company members perform a joyful, romantic dance filled with infectious rhythms. The film was directed and edited by Adam Salinas with Alexander Lakin as director of photography.
