Danceworks on Tap’s Joyful Noise
Brinkman-Sustache describes DOT, which was founded under the Danceworks umbrella in 2000, as “a group of friends who share a passion for tap dancing.” Most company members are teachers at Danceworks and elsewhere. The group’s unflagging desire to invent new ways to make noise with their feet is heartening. Joyful Noise’s finale is set to Michael Franti and Spearhead’s “The Sound of Sunshine” because, says Brinkman-Sustache, “If sunshine had a sound it would be like tap dancing.’
In addition to Brinkman-Sustache and Hess, the concert features work by company members Kelly Drake, Annette Grefig, Holly Heisdorf, Rachel Payden, Gabi Sustache, Tina Wozniak and guest artist Alissa Juckum.
Performances are Aug. 16-17 at 8 p.m. and Aug. 18 at 2:30 p.m. The Danceworks Studio Theatre is at 1661 N. Water St. For tickets, call 414-277-8084, ext. 6025, or visit dancworksmke.org.
