On December 5, 2015, CDHP took over several rooms at the Old Town School of Folk Music to host its first-ever transcribing marathon. Attendees brought their laptops and headphones, chose a recorded interview, and got to typing!

Typing from Chicago Dance History Project on Vimeo.

Bill Frederking brought hundreds of his photos for folks to peruse and help him identify dancers as they went.


We nourished everyone with food and entertained them with breaks for movement workshops and performances.


We also began collecting video portraits of the Chicago dance community. You can see these here. Check out the rest of our photos below.
