Chicago Multi-Cultural Dance Center's "Hiplet" Calls Printers Row Home

This is pretty cool and it's in Printers Row (via Great Big Story):

Here is the blurb for the video:
The dancers of the Chicago Multicultural Dance Center plié, pirouette and jeté to their own rhythm in a new form called Hiplet. The dance draws on both the movements of hip-hop and classical ballet technique and is performed on pointe shoes. We caught up with the dance's creator, Homer Hans Bryant, to learn some of the moves, get the story behind its inception and find out what it takes to make it as a Hiplet dancer.
We weren't familiar with the Chicago Multi-Cultural Dance Center, but apparently they're our neighbors!!!!
