The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble is Philadelphia's premier all female professional tap company. Under the guidance of Managing Director, Katie Budris, and Artistic Director, Kat Richter, the ensemble brings together local dancers and musicians to raise the profile of rhythm tap by creating both original choreography and improvised works.
Past performance credits include the Kimmel Center, City Hall, the Suzanne Roberts, the Painted Bride, the Wilma Theater, the Trocadero, and the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. The ensemble also performs at private functions and fundraisers.
In addition to performances, workshops, residency programs and lecture demonstrations, The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble hosts Master Classes taught by renown guest artists and weekly Open Company Classes.
Please consider supporting The Lady Hoofers' with a tax-deductible, secure, online donation. In June and July we raised $1,625 of our $2,000 goal. Help us reach that magic number to grow our educational programs and push the boundaries of tap dancing with innovative creative projects.
