What I liked

The show is a demonstration of the talents of 13 young people whose feet, and sometimes hands, keep to a beat that hardly ever stops. There are no individual characters in this story, that is set in an office where no work gets done because the staff enjoy dancing the workday away. They are certainly an energetic, attractive and talented lot and deserve to be given individual cameos. Sadly, since there was only a theme – nasty boss forbids tap dancing – but no real story with recognizable characters, it soon wore thin. Tap Overload is a company that produces videos on their You Tube Channel so check them out as the dancing is terrific.

What I didn't like

I was expecting a theater piece, not a tap dance demonstration. With the talent available it could have featured different people interacting in separate stories.

My overall impression

You’ll have to be a tap dance aficionado to truly appreciate this pitter-pat show.
