BEAVER CREEK — The Vilar Performing Arts Center will present Rhythmic Circus on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. These 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 their show, “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!”
In Rhythmic Circus’ “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!” “Heatbox,” the human beat box, joins the swinging seven-piece funk band to accompany each tap, shuffle and stomp with a clang, riff and refrain. With 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.
“Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!” premiered in August 2008 at the Ritz Theatre in Minneapolis, when the group’s dancers and founders joined forces with the seven Twin Cities heavyweight musicians. Together, they integrated an inventive style of rapid-fire tap with a variety of musical genres to create a show that presents a wildly creative view into the indomitable power of the human spirit.
The show’s brilliance has been marked by rave reviews, sold-out engagements and numerous awards, including two SAGE Awards for Outstanding Ensemble and Performance, a Spirit of the Fringe Award (Edinburgh Festival Fringe’s top theatrical award), two Upper Midwest Emmys and being named “Best Dance Performance” by Minneapolis’ City Pages.
The New York Post has raved the show is “a family-friendly tap extravaganza.” If you liked the energy, beats and rhythms of Broadway’s “Stomp,” then this show is for you. It’s a spectacle that blends dance, music and energetic stage performance all in one captivating show sure to mesmerize.
