In celebration of our 5th Anniversary, The Lady Hoofers are proud to present The Tapcracker, a full length, all tap version of the classic holiday favorite. Set to the music of both Tchaikovsky and Duke Ellington, The Tapcracker will transport audiences to Paris, where an infestation of rats has thrown the city into chaos. Toy soldiers guard the Eiffel Tower, mice wreak havoc in the Metro, and frazzled chefs prepare for a feast at the magical palace of Versailles, featuring characters from the beloved Land of the Sweets. After several years of sold out performances at the Performance Garage, the company will be moving to the Suzanne Roberts Theater on Philadelphia’s Avenue of the Arts, thanks in part to a grant from The Philadelphia Cultural Fund. The Tapcracker will feature The Lady Hoofers First Company, Apprentice Dancers, and 2017 Youth Ensemble, comprised of talented students from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.
Join The Lady Hoofers for a tap dance event filled with holiday cheer featuring favorites from A Charlie Brown Christmas and Tapcracker: our all tap Nutcracker set to the music of Duke Ellington. Evening performances will include live jazz music by Philadelphia's James Santangelo and friends.
The hour-long concert is family friendly and handicap accessible.
For the third year, we are also offering a pre-show Master Class for tap dancers. This package includes an hour of instruction by one of our first company dancers, a ticket to the Holiday Concert, and a Lady Hoofers t-shirt. A minimum of 15 students per master class is required for each class to run. Visit ladyhoofers.org to complete the registration form for the Master Class and purchase your ticket here.
