Dein Perry’s ‘Tap Dogs’ shuffles into Singapore this May

The mere mention of tap dancing might conjure up images of Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly all spiffy in their tuxedos tearing up the floor in movies such a ‘Shall We Dance’ and ‘Summer Stock’.

But ‘Tap Dogs’, a touring dance show choreographed by the Olivier Award-winning choreographer Dein Perry could not be more different.

Dubbed “the hottest show on legs”, ‘Tap Dogs’ comes to Singapore on 27 May, playing at the Marina Bay Sands’ MasterCard Theatres for eight performances.

The Perry-choreographed show that started in 1995 and has since performed in more than 300 cities worldwide is testosterone on tap.

Just imagine six blokes dancing away in a construction site setting, tapping on everything – in water, ladders, planks and even upside-down on a ceiling.

What ‘Stomp’ did for trashcans is what ‘Tap Dogs’ is doing for tap dancing: completely reinventing the genre with their fancy footwork. 

The show has since won 11 awards including New York’s Obie Award and a Pegasus Award.

The troupe’s highlight performance was the opening of the Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000 which featured 1,000 dancers. It was televised to 3.4 billion people and gained them worldwide recognition. The production has been watched by 12 million people in North America, Europe and Asia.
