Mixing hard-hitting percussive dance and a live rock band, “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!” premiered in 2008 and has gone on to rave reviews, numerous awards, and sold-out venues across the country. The dancers of Rhythmic Circus joined forces with the seven-piece band’s big, brass sound and together they integrate an inventive style of rapid-fire tap with a variety of musical genres. Their exhilarating and dynamic show presents a wildly creative view into the indomitable power of the human spirit.
Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center is proud to host Rhythmic Circus for an evening of a cappella singing, a percussive chair routine, tap number, and so many other lively performances. As you can see on the show’s website, “Heatbox” the human beatbox joins the swingin’ seven-piece funk band to accompany each tap, shuffle and stomp.
History of the Show
“Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!” debuted in the summer of 2008 in Minneapolis when the group’s dancers and founders teamed with a number of well-known musicians in the Twin Cities. What resulted was an inventive, unique style of tap with a variety of musical genres to create a wildly engaging show. For years since its debut, the show has garnered rave reviews and packed venues. “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!” took home a pair of SAGE Awards for Outstanding Ensemble and Performance, a Spirit of the Fringe Award, two Upper Midwest Emmys and was named “Best Dance Performance” by City Pages.
If you’ve never been to your local performing arts center or just want to enjoy an evening of live music and dancing, then “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!” is for you! We’re certain that you’ll be jumping out of your seat and dancing to the beat of this genre-hopping music and hard-hitting percussive dance.
