Shufflin’ Into Spring!

The Hot Foot Honeys’ very favorite season is upon us! Spring has sprung, our choreography is being perfected with each rehearsal, and the countdown for our spring showcase has officially begun! You can buy your tickets for TAPography ahead of time to ensure you won’t miss out! Visit The Buckman’s website and grab tickets for any of the THREE shows: Friday, April 20 and Saturday, April 21 at 8:00pm, or Sunday, April 22 at 2:00pm. In addition to our fabulous spring showcase, on April 21st, Asha Griffith will be joining us in teaching a master class!  1:00-2:00pm will be for the kiddos under 18, and 2:00-3:00pm is for intermediate adults 18 and up!

Putting on a show is a major challenge, and pulling it off seamlessly requires a lot of help!  We would like to take a moment to showcase our artists and collaborators for this year’s showcase! First up, Deneka Lewis and her fierce vocal stylings.  We are ever grateful that she continues to grace the stage with us with her beautiful voice.  You can visit her Facebook and take a peek and some of the pieces she’s been performing! Next, we have Siphne Sylve, beatboxing extraordinaire.  We are so excited to collaborate again, because you’ll truly never hear anything quite like this! Please visit Siphne’s website here!...

For the Love of Dance….

For some, Valentine’s Day conjures up images of pink and red, sweet treats, and bouquets of flowers.  For tap dancers, this day holds a very different meaning:  February 14th, 1946, the iconic Gregory Hines was born.  He is responsible for inspiring a new generation of tappers with his diverse talents and passion for spreading the love of tap.  Thanks to his efforts in Congress and the film “Tap”, along with the help of many other artists, we celebrate National Tap Dance Day every May 25th, a day that unifies dancers around the world.  His lifelong love of dance has inspired many of the members of the Hot Foot Honeys, and a special solo will be dedicated to him during our spring showcase, Tapography.  Come share in the love and honor his memory April 20-22 at the Buckman! “I’m going to tap until I can’t: I’ll be so old, all I can do is walk out from the wings to stage center.  But I’ll be there.” -In loving memory of Gregory Hines (February 14th, 1946-August 9, 2003) Our first tap workshop of the year was a wonderful success!  Our beginner and absolute beginner tappers filled both studio spaces at the Evergreen Theater with such rhythm and energy.  A huge thank you to everyone who attended, our incredible board members who go above and beyond to make every Hot Foot Honeys event a success, and Hot Foot Honeys members Cristina and Danielle for being the fearless leaders of each workshop group.  We can’t wait for the next workshop event, which will feature Asha Griffith!  Keep a close eye out for more...

Happy Tappy Holidays from the Hot Foot Honeys!

“Twas the week before Christmas and in the dance space All the Honeys were tapping all over the place Their shuffles and scuffles and wings on point It’s the best season yet, and we won’t disappoint!” As we decorate our trees, wrap our gifts, and surround ourselves with loved ones, we look towards the horizon with excitement for the remainder of our season.  As our gift to you, here are some of our highlights, hot tips, and exciting news so far! First and foremost, we grew our Hot Foot Honeys family this year by three!  Our amazing new members Meredith, Ari, and McKenzie have brought to us fresh perspective, exciting ideas, and a wealth of knowledge from their varying dance backgrounds.  Memphis is so fortunate to have such a thriving artistic community, and the Hot Foot Honeys are thrilled that these artists heard the buzz and joined us. Prior to the holidays, we had a challenging marathon weekend session with tap great Asha Griffith, who has so graciously offered the Honeys some of her incredible choreography to premier in TAPography, our spring showcase.  Her contemporary tap style is truly unlike anything you’ve ever seen. You won’t want to miss her guest spot in the upcoming show, so mark you calendars for April 20-22 at the Buckman! In addition to Asha’s piece, on Sunday nights we’ve been busy as bees working on new pieces for our spring showcase.  We are excited to say that some of these BRAND NEW original tap pieces are nearing completion!  Keep your eyes peeled for some exclusive sneak-peeks on our Facebook. In the meantime, enjoy...
