This is not just tap. Experience high voltage, rugged, raw talent in the tap dance phenomenon which has taken the world by storm.

Dein Perry's Tap Dogs returns to the stage with its trademark blend of live music and tap dance as you've never seen before. The New York Observer called it “positively electrifying.”

Part theater, part dance, part rock concert, and part construction site, this jaw-dropping show is crammed with high energy, featuring music performed by the cast and live musicians in an unstoppable spectacular. Whether in water, upside-down, or jumping through scaffolding, the Tap Dogs have been performing to the beat of their own drum for over 20 years. 

Winners of over 15 international awards including an Olivier Award (UK), an Obie Award (New York) and a Pegasus Award (Spoleto Festival in Italy), the global smash hit has appeared in over 330 cities on six continents and has been seen live by over 12 million people. A worldwide television audience of over 3.4 billion saw 1,000 Tap Dogs performing in the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney Olympics.

Recommended for age 8 and up. Please Note: This performance contains haze/fog and strobe light effects. 

Performance Timing: Approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
