The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble is Philadelphia's premiere all female tap company. Under the direction 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.
