“A family-friendly tap extravaganza!” –NEW YORK POST
This season, don’t miss out on a wildly-imaginative, “not-so-silent night” the whole family can celebrate together. Four world-renowned hoofers and their swingin’ seven-piece band inject the signature Rhythmic Circus style of rapid-fire tap into upbeat holiday classics. These homegrown tap phenoms from Minneapolis hit the road with a trunk full of tap shoes, funky costumes and a big brass band, ready to burst onto the stage with their holiday spectacular, Holiday Shuffle.
It’s a joyous parade of genre-hopping holiday music and hard-hitting percussive dance that will have you jumping out of your seat, dancing to the beat, and filled with holiday spirit! Among the many festive wonders in store, Holiday Shuffle features a wildly-imaginative beatboxing rendition of “The Grinch”, a full-cast performance of “Linus and Lucy” (A Charlie Brown Christmas), five new originals, and a bright mash-up, syncopated percussive dance medley titled “Toy Soldier March” performed at eye-popping speeds. With their combined and highly integrated talents, the dancers and musicians are known for leaving audiences on their feet and dancing in the aisles.
