The Live Show

On 18 June 2022, our 130 participants came to Brindleyplace, Birmingham, for a mass extravaganza of tap dance! Along with their dance captains, they performed to a crowd of hundreds, helped along by our MC Christopher Green and BSL interpreter Clare Edwards, with music by Amy Kakoura and film by Rachel Bunce created especially for the performance. Sadly the weather didn't hold up so we had to perform without tap shoes - not that this dampened anyone's spirits. 

A group of dancers in t-shirts are performing in the rain. At the front a woman raises her hands to the sky in joy.

The performers take a bow as the audience claps and cheers. It is pouring with rain and umbrellas are raised.

You can relive the action with the videos below. The first is our 'rainy' performance and the second is the 'sunny' version from our dress rehearsal!

In this clip, our dance captains perform a moving homage to the greats of tap dance.

This series of short films formed the backdrop to the live performance, produced by filmmaker Rachel Bunce:
