“Heatbox” the human beatbox, joins the swingin’ seven-piece funk band to accompany each tap, shuffle, and stomp with a clang, riff and refrain. It’s easy to see why the this troupe was a 2012 winner of the Edinburgh Festival “Spirit of the Fringe” Award. In this joyous parade of genre-hopping music and hard-hitting percussive dance, you’ll be jumping out of your seat and dancing to the beat! Rhythmic Circus is a troupe of internationally renowned artists. Since their early start at a small theatre in northeast Minneapolis, they have grown into an international sensation touring to over 100 cities worldwide. Although the company’s official inception was in 2007, the troupe’s core members have been choreographing and performing together since 2000. No stranger to the spotlight, they were featured on Twin City Public Television’s MN Original, collaborated with Vocal Essence in Witness: A Tribute to Duke Ellington at the Ordway Performing Arts Center and appeared in the Crash Bang Boom! Festival at the Minnesota Orchestra Hall. The company’s repute goes well beyond the sum of the dancer’s talents; themed pieces include costume changes and musical segues that highlight the funky styling of a seven-piece band. With their combined and highly integrated talents, the dancers and musicians are known for leaving audiences on their feet and dancing in the aisles. “They bring the furious funk...and tap their way into everyone’s hearts!” - Star Tribune “Fast, furious footwork!” - New York Times “A family-friendly tap extravaganza!” - New York Post
