The Hot Foot Honeys are officially back in the studio, gearing up for the biggest, best season yet!
First and foremost: You asked for it, Memphis, and we are DELIVERING! Assistant Artistic Director and company member Kelby Auten will be offering a series of adult tap classes, starting September 17th! This will be from 7-8pm at Theatreworks!
If this doesn’t sate your appetite for tap, we also have TWO opportunities coming up for Master classes! Matt Shields will be making a pit stop with Postmodern Jukebox in Memphis, and will be sharing his incredible talent with our community on October 2nd.
The following weekend, the Hot Foot Honeys will be having a whirlwind weekend with the incomparable Charles Renato! Not only will he be setting a piece for our spring show (you will NOT want to miss it!), but he will also be offering a master class on October 12th!
Be sure to visit our website to reserve your spot. Space is limited!
