Continuing on with its Ovations! series, the Lively Arts at
Indiana University of Pennsylvania will present “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now,” created and performed by the world-touring
troupe Rhythmic Circus. This unforgettable show will be performed on Tuesday,
December 3, 2013. It will take place at Fisher Auditorium of IUP’s Performing
Arts Center at a special early family-friendly time of 7:00 p.m.
“Feet Don’t Fail Me Now”
is the story of Rhythmic Circus, a group of excited and talented tap dancers
who are on a mission to do no less than inspire every single man, woman, and
child on earth to find the hidden dancer that lives inside them. Through a
series of high-energy songs, monologues, and the investigative work of beat-boxing
narrator Bobert C. Case, Rhythmic Circus takes the audience into adventures
that will be long remembered.
Receiving rave reviews for their production currently
running at the New Victory Theater in New York City and the highest ratings
from audience members across the U.S., this show is filled with the
super-charged tap dancing mixed with a wide variety of musical styles from funk
to blues and salsa to rock and roll. With four award-winning dancers and a
six-piece band, this raucous show is a holiday treat for all ages.
Since its inception in 2007, Rhythmic Circus has quickly
risen to become the busiest touring tap company in the nation. The group’s
reputation goes well beyond the sum of the dancer’s talents and their origins
in Minnesota’s Twin Cities.

Infusing their unpredictable blend of hard-hitting tap, high-spirited humor, and finger-snapping tunes, Rhythmic Circus satisfies their “rhythmic appetite” on everything from sand to folding chairs, and in one number even utilizes the technology of electric drum triggers to change the sound of their taps!
