World Class Tap on the Blue Strawberry Stage from the Stars of Tap Dogs and Stomp

Both Anthony and Justin are alumni of worldwide, multi-year tours of Tap Dogs, the  hugely popular ode to tap, which the New York Observer called “Positively Electrifying.” Justin toured for years - as the lead - in worldwide phenomenon and mega-hit STOMP, making hypnotic, percussive music and theater with brooms, newspapers and garbage-can lids. Anthony has performed with Cirque de Soleil, and toured Europe with Rock The Ballet.

Both musicians, Justin plays drums - toured with  three major tribute shows, Michael Jackson HIStory Show, Tina Turner's Simply The Best, and Whitney Houston's The Greatest Love Of All - and Anthony guitar, weaving original  music and covers into the show. Expect a battle of the tap dancers, in which each tries to do outdo the other in a series of increasingly fast and complex steps. And hear stories from their road-warrior years with both Tap Dogs and Stomp. 

In addition to his performance credits, Anthony produces tap dance education programs throughout North America under his touring company, @TapTheMap, and an annual event in St Louis, MO, @ShowMeTapFest. Justin is a professional dance instructor in Tap dance, Contemporary/Modern, and Body Percussion teaching around the  international dance network with DCTap festival, Jersey Tap Festival, Monterrey Tap Festival, RIFF Tap festival, Ambition, DMA and more!
