Rhythmic Circus’ rapid-fire style to be displayed on 2 isle stages


A truly unique dance experience hits two Big Island stages as Rhythmic Circus presents the spectacular “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now.”

Shows are 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the University of Hawaii at Hilo Performing Arts Center and 7 p.m. Thursday at Kahilu Theatre in Waimea.

“It is said that there’s tap dancing, and then there’s Rhythmic Circus,” said UH-Hilo Performing Arts Center Manager Lee Dombroski.

The percussive-dance troupe from Minneapolis electrifies audiences with its hard-hitting, rapid-fire tap, sidesplitting humor and finger-snapping tunes.

Their performance features unbelievable tap from four award-winning dancers, a one-man beat-box phenomenon and a six-piece band that channels everything from funk to blues and rock ’n’ roll to salsa.

Tickets for the Hilo show are reserved seating and priced at $25 for general admission, $20 for qualified discounts and $12 for UH students with a valid student ID and children 17 and younger, and are available by calling the UH-Hilo box office at 932-7490 or online at www.artscenter.uhh.hawaii.edu.

Tickets for the Waimea show range from $20 to $64 and are available online at www.kahilutheatre.org or by calling the Kahilu box office at 885-6868.
