TAP – The Show (“TAP”) is Matt Davenport Productions’ latest contribution to their vast repertoire of touring successes. TAP is the culmination of years researching the traditions of step dancing by writer / director Scott Seidl. As a percussionist and dancer himself Seidl’s interest in the expressive power in this marriage of dance and percussion was realized when executive producer Matt Davenport challenged him in 2009 to create a truly unique dance production. Since then the show has become a perennial favorite at Hersheypark (Pennsylvania) and garnered the “Heartbeat” award from the International Association Amusement Parks and Attractions. The success of the show has led to the creation of a full theatrical version of the production for this national tour. The show explores the international family tree of tap dancing, including Irish, African and Spanish traditions, as well as contemporary urban expressions. Musical selections range from percussive flamenco and tribal compositions, to the Beatles, Aerosmith, and the iconic Fred Astaire.
