The Arts on Center Stage – The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble
June 30 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble produces original works of choreography while preserving the tradition of improvisation in American rhythm tap, bringing innovative percussive dance to diverse audiences. Founded in 2011, the Philadelphia-based, all-women ensemble centers the work of women artists and contributes to the revitalization of Philadelphia’s rich tap history by challenging the public’s perception of percussive dance through choreographic commissions, a bi-annual concert series at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre including The Tapcracker and On Tap, free community performances, and arts education programming. This free, 60-minute concert will include company favorites and new repertoire performed by the ensemble’s First Company and Apprentice dancers.
