Dancers tap into Harris Center

The Harris Center presents perhaps the most popular tap show since Tap Dogs and the winner of the “Spirit of the Fringe” Award.

“Rhythmic Circus: Feet Don’t Fail Me Now” continues its rise from an underground percussive dance phenomenon into an international sensation that’s been performed in more than 90 cities worldwide.”

“Feet Don’t Fail Me Now” tells the tale of four tap dancing misfits who cross paths with a nutty private investigator possessing the power to halt time. The ensuing bond that develops between them puts them on a journey that presents a wildly creative look at personal discovery and transformation.

“We created ‘Feet Don’t Fail Me Now’ out of the desire to get people back in touch with the spirit of celebration. The show helps remind our audiences that there is always a reason to get up, let go and dance,” said co-creator Nick Bowman. “The name of our show comes from an old New Orleans chant dating back to the early 1900s when they literally had parades in the street every Sunday just to celebrate their lives and community. These people were rich — not necessarily financially, but with culture and spirit. Rhythmic Circus has adopted the chant as more of a rallying cry and has been ecstatic to see it strike a chord with people everywhere from our home town all the way across the globe.”

From its beginnings five years ago at a small theater in Northeast Minneapolis, “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now” continues its phenomenal run with a 100 show, 60-city tour kicking off with a six-week, 20 venue tour in China.

Along the way the tour will also orchestrate performances in New York City with an extended run at the infamous New Victory Theatre on 42nd Street in Times Square.

“Rhythmic Circus: Feet Don’t Fail Me Now” will perform on Saturday, Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 1 at 2 p.m. at the Harris Center for the Arts (formerly Three Stages) at Folsom Lake College, 10 College Parkway in Folsom.

Tickets are $21 to $34 with premium tickets $45. Tickets are available online at harriscenter.net or from the Harris Center ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket.
