Now it’s Rutland’s turn to experience the award-winning show that has been described as “Part theatre, part dance, part rock concert and part construction site!” by the BBC UK.
The show features high-energy dance, theatrical performance and live music performed by a cast of six dancers and two musicians who bring the steel works to life in a fast paced, unstoppable spectacular that is the perfect show for anyone from 8-80.The winner of over 15 international awards including an Olivier Award (UK), an Obie Award (New York) and a Pegasus Award (Spoleto Festival in Italy), Tap Dogs is a 90-minute show combining the strength and power of workmen with the precision and talent of tap dancing. Whether they are in water, upside-down or jumping through scaffolding, the Tap Dogs have been performing to the beat of their own drum since their world premiere at the Sydney Theatre Festival in January 1995. Success quickly followed with seasons in London, New York, Tokyo, Paris, Berlin and many other cities. A worldwide television audience of over 3.4 billion saw 1,000 Tap Dogs performing in the opening ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
