The Traveling Tap Dance Super Show - KC Fringe Festival review by SceneAlot | KC Stage Reviews

Caught Tristan and Marty's show on Saturday night and it was solid! These guys are wicked good tap dancers! They make it all seem easy, which it decidedly is not! The super hero persona and his arch nemesis, the Mad Tapper, didn't add all that much for me, but I guess it did serve to move the show along, and change things up. I can take my tap dancing straight up, no chaser. Both guys can dance/tap their feet off, and the Super Kids were also great! Loved the sand dance! Loved the ending when they invited anyone who knew how to tap on stage with them for the finale. So sweet!

Author Katherine Linquist, age 20, is a modern and contemporary dancer who has always enjoyed choreography and reading. She grew up just outside Topeka and is a dance major at Belhaven University in Jackson, Mississippi.  “Twelve-Day Christmas of Silverleene Forest” was born into a first draft eight years ago, during the Christmas season when Linquist was just 12 years old and had the idea of creating a dance production / book out of the “The Twelve Days of Christmas” song.

Hayley Erbert was just a smalltown dancer in Topeka, and then I ended up watching her journey on So You Think You Can Dance and will be seeing her tour live. If she can do it, why can't I?!

Look at the clusters of faces as they spin back and forth, and one thing stands out: There’s a big smile on every one. That tends to happen when you square dance, say members of Lawrence’s Happy Time Squares.
