The Alchemy Tap Project presents Beat Science - Music in Motion, a show that revives and reimagines a classic American art form. Featuring some of Seattle's best tap dancers, live music by the excellent Cascade Jazz Quartet, and cutting edge choreography, this is an evening of entertainment that will change the way you see the art of tap dancing.
Beat Science - Music in Motion is an exploration of the possibilities of tap. Beginning with its roots in the world of jazz music, then breaking down the art form to its bare elements, the show culminates with a forward-looking suite of choreography incorporating unique electronic music and influences of ballet and hip hop. With creative use of drumsticks, wooden boxes, and metal chairs (and a healthy dose of comedy), this show promises to be a good time for audiences of all ages.
