Event Description

STEPOLOGY’s "TAP into the NOW!", presented in partnership with the Lensic Performing Arts Center, showcases the hottest tap artists of today in a concert experience unlike any other. Described as “...an unrivaled and dazzling array of tap talent that invoked an appreciation of tap's history while inspiring an excitement for tap's present and future” (San Francisco Bay Times), STEPOLOGY’s critically-acclaimed, award winning performances continue to redefine audience perceptions of tap dance while infusing this treasured American art form with the energy, rhythms, and velocity of modern day life. This is tap dance in the 21st century.

A roster of today’s tap stars from Broadway, film, and the concert stage returns for the annual concert performance, which has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle’s “Top Ten Dance Performances of the Year” in multiple years. The cast includes Music Director Channing Cook Holmes (Riverdance), Festival Director John Kloss (Tap Heat), Mark Mendonca (The Polar Express; Bring in ‘da Noise, Bring in ‘da Funk), Jason Rodgers (Bring in ‘da Noise, Bring in ‘da Funk), Special Musical Guest Bert Dalton, and Percussionist John Bartlit. STEPOLOGY also welcomes returning guest artists Fred Simpson, Elise Gent and D'Jeune D'Jeune African Dance Ensemble.
