CTT presents this celebration of the best in tap dance, from historical pieces from the past to the innovative and compelling original work for which the company is known. High production values and dynamic performances are the hallmark of this family-friendly, accessible show.
“The performance was of the highest professional quality, eclectic, surprisingly diverse and entertaining. Many wonder if tap can sustain an entire evening in repertory performance. CTT proves that it’s not only possible, it is every bit as engaging as any other dance genre and in many ways, far more accessible and entertaining.” Tommy Hensel, Managing Director, Fine and Performing Arts Center, Moraine Valley Community College.
