A Celebration of American Tap Dance,
From Indianapolis to Washington State, The Souls of Our Feet is making a mark across the country after its highly successful premiere in Austin in November 2006. To standing ovations, this concert has delivered flying feet from the past to the present and will be at Lutcher Theater in Orange, Texas on Friday, April 25th, 2008 at 7:30pm.
This fast paced collection of footwork restages and pays tribute to the best of rhythm tap masterpieces from Fred Astaire & Eleanor Powell to The Nicholas Brothers as well as contemporary works of living masters. Led by the live jazz music of the Eddy Hobizal Jazz Trio and featuring international solo artists Dianne Walker and Acia Gray as well as Tapestry artist Jason Janas, this one-of-a-kind concert brings swingin’ jazz and 18 flying feet keeping time to the pulse of this wonderful and indigenous American artform; a celebration of rhythm at its best!
“Tapestry dancers fly through complicated patterns such as the popular "Fascinatin’ Shim Sham" and traditional vaudeville choruses in total unison, the torrent of toes astounds!”
The Austin American – Statesman (November 2006)
“The audience surely left knowing more about tap than when they came in and was thoroughly entertained in the process!”
Dance Magazine (March 2007)
