Most people tap their feet when they hear music, but some people make music by tapping their feet. As its second concert of the 2012-13 season, the Golden Belt Community Concert Association will present “TAP – The Show,” celebrating the artistry of tap dance from around the globe.
The show is set for 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15, at the Great Bend Municipal Auditorium, located at Lakin and Stone. This event is available to concert association members. Full-time students will be admitted to the concert for a $5 donation at the door by showing their school ID card. The auditorium will open at 6:30 p.m.
Winner of the 2010 Heartbeat Award, “TAP – The Show” is fueled by a non-stop explosion of rhythmic energy. Wrapped in dazzling costumes and backed by a soaring orchestral score, this cast of eight award-winning dancers and two singers travels seamlessly over decades of styles from Broadway and big band to world music and pop/rock.
Each section brings to life iconic tap moments of the past and creates brand new moments that amaze audiences, sponsors said. Included in this extravaganza are recreations of some Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly numbers, Broadway show stoppers, soft shoe, flamenco, tribal Irish Step, and more.
