Did you hear the inaugural work from the Australian Tap Dance Company is premiering July 8 – 10?
FORM Dance Projects and Riverside Theatres are proud to welcome The Australian Tap Dance Company as they premiere, The Tap Affect.
The Tap Affect is a celebration of the unique art form of tap. With each of the eight performers having their own tap style and story, they will each delve into their emotional bond to the art form as well as pay tribute to the masters of tap including Eddie Brown, Buster Brown, Bill Robinson, John Bubbles, Eleanor Powell and Jeni Legon.
The show goes back to the roots of tap dance, most commonly associated with rhythm tap. With musically intricate steps, different accents and time signatures, The Tap Affect features stunningly difficult and exquisite tap.
Brianna Taylor, co-creative director of The Australian Tap Dance Company, said, “The Tap Affect is a celebration of what inspires our Australian dancers. We see diverse slices of each artist’s emotional connection to the art form that come together to provide a powerful performance. Each segment will be a biographical view into their connection to dance.”
Formed in 2019, The Tap Affect is the first work to be presented by The Australian Tap Dance Company. The Company’s creative directors – Jack Egan, Brianna Taylor, Peta Anderson and Thomas J Egan – are passionate about producing and creating work for Australian tap dancers and audiences.
