Slide into the New Year!

For the Hot Foot Honeys, the holidays were merry and bright!  After spending a total of over 20 hours in group rehearsals since September (not even counting small groups!), we’ve enjoyed a quick break before hitting the ground tapping for our 2020 showcase.  We are grateful to spend another year together, and reflect on what made 2019 an incredible year! We started our year off in January with an incredible master class, led by Leo Sandoval of Dorrance Dance. A fun, challenging experience, everyone felt a little silly and ready to create! In February, our artistic director Marianne Bell was honored with not one, but TWO awards from the Destined 2 Dance awards. She was awarded both the “Most Inspirational Choreographer” and “Most Innovative Tap”.  There is no one more deserving of this honor, not only for her incredible work in the dance community, but for the work she does for the Memphis community as a whole.  She is truly a real rock star, and we are so fortunate to have her in our corner! In April, we had what we feel was the best showcase yet! Time Stepping gave us an opportunity to work with some fabulous collaborators and gifted guest artists.  We had more feet in seats than years prior, exposing even more people to tap dance!  One of the highlights of this was performing the empowering piece, set on us by Josh Scribner.  We truly enjoyed the whirlwind weekend we spent learning this choreography, and the amazing crowd response. As most of you know, one of our favorite parts of being the only professional tap company...
