THE ERA is a Chicago-based footwork crew. Members from the group have performed at London’s Barbican Centre, Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, South by Southwest and have collaborated with various artists and collectives such as Teklife, Chance The Rapper, Towkio from SaveMoney and many more.
The group was founded on the Southside of Chicago in order to push dance and music as one to the next level. Members Litebulb, SteeLo, Dempsey and Chief Manny (along with Dj Jody Digital) met as members of the Chicago battle crew Terra Squad. Litebulb and P-Top (Goon Squad) met on the set of the film Manglehorn for a cameo and formed THE ERA after being friendly rivals from several years prior.
The ERA will be performing live and hosting a footwork workshop at REUSE.
