I am beaming proud of Shaunessey for her best performance to date… which garned her being awarded the Number One tap routine in her age category, as well as the First Place soloist in the 9-11 age category at this weekend’s StarPower regional competition in Springfield MA. I could not be more proud! Choreography by Lesley Weber. Music by Rhythmic Circus; much love to them for sending me the Minus-Taps mix from their amazingly tapalicious FDFMN song!
Today, May 25, is National Tap Dance Day, and not much embodies all the wonderful qualities of tap quite like Rhythmic Circus. This group of Minneapolis-based musicians and tappers has a fun show, filled with dance, music, funk, beatboxing, and most of all, a lot of humor. Our whole family got to see the show a couple of weekends ago, and it was truly a delight.
To cap off the evening, all the performers came out and signed autographs. These are genuinely a really nice bunch of people who are performing their hearts out. Be sure to catch them in New York City starting in October of this year! (2012)
