Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble is long recognized as a creative and pioneering force in presenting roots-based music and percussive dance. With a dazzling and diverse array of traditional and original music and choreography, Footworks takes you on a journey that conveys the power and joy of American percussive dance and music while illuminating its multicultural roots, integrating live music, song, and dance to highlight connections between cultures, including African, European, and Native American traditions.
"Hot Strings and Flying Feet" tells the story of the many people who came to this land bringing their rhythms and melodies, steps and dances, met each other here and created new living traditions. Live music and an exciting array of percussive dances are performed, including step dance, gumboot dance, tap, clogging, and hamboning, along with inspiring audience participation.
Tickets are $15 for adults. All children and students are free to attend. Pro-Art season tickets will be honored for this performance. This performance is part of the W. Campbell Edmonds Concert Series.
