Tap Dogs, an irreverent industrial revolution of tap is set to premier at The Mahaffey on Thursday, Nov. 8, 7:30 p.m.
ST. PETERSBURG - Construction workers turned professional tap dancers are turning the dance industry upside down - literally!

Tap Dogs, an irreverent industrial revolution of tap is set to premier at The Mahaffey on Thursday, Nov. 8, 7:30 p.m.

Created by Olivier Award-winning choreographer Dein Perry, Tap Dogs is a rough, tough, rocking theatrical entertainment. Known as the “hottest show on legs,” Tap Dogs is shucking, jiving and shuffling its way to The Mahaffey for its St. Petersburg debut.

Tickets for this one-night-only performance are priced at $25.50, $39.50, $49.50, and $59.50 and may only be purchased by calling 727-893-7832.

Tap Dogs is set on a steel workers construction site in Newcastle, Australia where six dancers tap to their own beat against all odds. The ensemble performs through all obstacles – in water, on moving scaffolds, or even upside down. The Tap Dogs story has gone on to immortalized in the movie Bootmen, directed by Dein Perry and inspired by his Tap Dogs experiences. The stage show continues to wow audiences all over the world now touring for 16 years.

Winner of 11 international awards, Tap Dogs premiered at the Sydney Theatre Festival. Tap Dogs played packed houses at Sadler’s Wells in London; return tours of Australia; a West End engagement, for which Perry won a second consecutive Olivier Award in 1996 for choreography; and, an off Broadway, New York season in 1997.

The Australian dance sensation returned home in 2000 to take part in the opening ceremony of the Sydney Olympic Games. One thousand Tap Dogs from companies around the world performed to an audience of 3.4 billion viewers as the event was televised across the world.
