Media review of last year's Gala Show (by Dance Informa and Dance Writer):

"Experiencing tap dance is a unique experience because you feel the rhythms created by the dancer and travel a physical journey with them. If you think 'Anything Goes' is the height of the art form just wait until you see everything else it can be under the exploration of great artists such as Egan and Butterfly!"


"Even as an audience member who knows virtually nothing about the technical aspects of tap dance, I couldn't help but be impressed by the energy and dynamism exhibited by the dancers, and the varying styles of performance - from funk to Flamenco to hip-hop"


"If this show can prove one thing, it is tap can blend into any dancing style. If you are a fan for long legs and bowler hats, there are Broadway numbers with live vocals for you. If you are hot for some Flamenco, there are routines inspired by Paso Doble. The audience even gets to indulge in a little Michael Jackson tribute"

"When the visiting artists did their solo pieces it became clear that we were seeing some of the world's best on this local stage in Armadale."
