C2O Rhythm & Arts is dedicated to the
support & preservation of cultural and performing arts.
We are always thrilled for a new opportunity to dance, drum, sing, choreograph, collaborate, create.
Student, teacher & choreographer for more than a decade, Chi Chi O. is a lover of dance & music of all forms...with a particular passion for rhythm tap! Her “hoofer” style (greatly influenced by the late tap master, Gregory Hines) emphasizes the importance of rhythmic precision, technique & personal style.
Rhythm Tap with Chi Chi O. promises a unique and soulful journey to inspire the artist in all who come to share the experience.
