Feet Don't Fail Me Now!
Four homegrown hoofers from Minneapolis hit the road with a trunk full of tap shoes, funky costumes, and a big brass band, ready to burst onto the stage with this inventive and rapid-fire show! "Heatbox," the human beatbox, joins the swingin' seven-piece funk band to accompany each tap, shuffle, and stomp with a clang, riff, and refrain. The New York Post calls Feet Don't Fail Me Now! "a family-friendly tap extravaganza," while Minneapolis's Star-Tribune says "they bring the furious funk… and tap their way into everyone's hearts!" It's easy to see why this troupe was a winner of the Edinburgh Festival's "Spirit of the Fringe" Award, its top theatrical honor. In this joyous parade of genre-hopping music and hard-hitting percussive dance, you'll be jumping out of your seat and dancing to the beat!
For age 7 and up.
