A group of dynamic dancers from Minneapolis have hit the road with a trunk full of tap shoes, funky costumes and a big brass band, bringing their high-energy show, Feet Don't Fail Me Now, to the Ames Center stage. Heatbox, the human beat box, joins the swingin' seven-piece band Root City to accompany each shuffle and stomp as the tappers let loose on everything from sand to folding chairs. This joyous parade of genre-hopping music and hard-hitting percussive dance mixes funk, salsa and more into a theatrical event that won Rhythmic Circus the prestigious Edinburgh Festival "Spirit of the Fringe" Award in 2012.
