Winter, spring, summer and fall, the Hot Foot Honeys are tapping through them all!

We have had an amazing year of expanding our community outreach: Nothing is more important to the Hot Foot Honeys than reaching parts of the Memphis community that may not have access to the arts otherwise.
We started the very early part of our 2018-2019 season with a collaboration with FEMMEMPHIS, with their production of Pretty. This show bridged the gap with theater and dance, and allowed us to create meaningful relationships across the Memphis theater community.
The Honeys brought improv to the Downtown Get Down. Despite the heat, these ladies were moving their feet.
Since many of the Hot Foot Honeys are also teachers, community outreach gearing towards exposing children to tap is one of our top priorities! So far, the company has participated in the Memphis Children’s Theater Festival and GPAC’s Peanut Butter & Jam-Tap, Rhythm and Rhyme.
Our reach doesn’t extend to just Memphis youth though! The Honeys also performed a very special piece for the Survivors Party: a tribute to locals who have survived domestic abuse.
This fall, we had the pleasure of participating in a guest artist residency. Josh Scribner from the Alchemy Tap Project traveled to Memphis to set upon the company a piece for the upcoming spring showcase. It was a whirlwind weekend with classes and workshops, and the final product will be a real treat to everyone that attends our show in April!
If you’re keeping tabs, you won’t believe what we have in store for you after the New Year! The arts community in Memphis is ON THE MAP and we cannot wait to share some exciting upcoming events, new social media campaigns, and the best tap programming that Memphis has to offer! Stay tuned, follow us on social media, and let us know what YOU want to see from the Honeys going into the shiny New Year! Follow us today!
