PULLMAN, Wash. — CAUTION: Men at Work Tap, a national tap dance sensation, will perform at Washington State University’s Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2.
Tap dancing takes center stage along with live music and percussion for the evening performance. The program features dancers in a variety of vocations from fire fighters with extinguishers, traffic officers, and bartenders to a number with emergency room doctors.
The dance troupe, which is based in Los Angeles, performs energetic routines using “zapped” taps choreographed by director Alfred Desio. Desio created the original, unique sound effect system called Zap Tap for the movie “Tap” starring Gregory Hines.
Desio has starred in Broadway productions of “West Side Story,” “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Man of La Mancha.” Louise Rechlin who has performed and choreographed throughout North America including the 1984 Olympics, co-directed and choreographed the show.
CAUTION: Men at Work Tap was created in 1999 and since then has played to sellout crowds across the United States. The performance is sponsored by Festival Dance and Performing Arts, Inc.
Tickets are $10-$28 and available at Beasley Coliseum box office, G & B Select-A-Seat locations, online at www.ticketswest.com or by calling 1-800/325-SEAT.
