“The 10th Annual Swinging Night of Tap”
Saturday, April 17th and Sunday, April 18th, 2010
Decatur City Dance presents “The 10th Annual Swinging Night of Tap.” Featuring 18 works, the show runs about two hours and is guaranteed to entertain audiences of all ages. Come enjoy a wide variety of dance and music styles. Most of the choreography is by Birda Ringstad, director of the Rhythm Keepers (an adult tap company), the Junior Rhythm Keepers (a teen tap company), and the Rug Cutters (a teen swing dance group). Guest musicians Peter Chen (violin) and John Moore (guitar) will perform “Libertango” with the Rhythm Keepers. Mr. Moore will also perform “Classical Gas” with Tommy’s Girls – Sheila Artis, Jenny Greene, Lynn Payne and Birda Ringstad. These dancers call themselves Tommy’s Girls because they all studied with renowned tap dancer Tommy Sutton. The Apprentice and Professional Ensembles of Decatur City Dance will also perform. Internationally-known tap dancer Josh Hilberman from Boston will appear as a special guest performer.
