July On Tap Notes

Happy July Tappers!
Hope you are enjoying your break but still “breaking the wood” a little with your taps. Monday afternoons I’m in the Tap House in West Salem if anyone wants to come jam. Dori, Marie, and Robbin have been creating some great rhythms together. It’s been a hot summer so far which is great for dancing!
Here are your July On Tap Notes:  
1) Check out our Facebook page (Stacey Brown’s On Tap) to see photos from the On Tap Showcase.  : https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=117193528370338&fref=ts
Thank you to Sarah Hoggatt for taking these wonderful shots of all you “hot shots”.
2)Attached to these tap notes is a letter from the Society for NeuroOncology in Houston Texas where we sent the root beer float donations from our Showcase. Thank you to all who donated to this worthy cause in memory of Bailey Santana. Also attached is an article Dori Nelson gave me I wanted to share with everyone about Tony Danza. Thanks Dori!
3)Happy July birthday to Emily Vetter and Evie Hoppe! I hope it is the tappiest yet! We will celebrate with the birthday dance when you next return to On Tap. Thinking about you on your special day!!
4)I hope you are all watching So You Think You Can Dance on Monday nights. There are some tap dancers auditioning.
5) Here are some videos to watch and enjoy and maybe try out some of the steps.

6) Pentacle Theater here in Salem is presenting Chicago July 10 to August 1. This show was originally staged by Bob Fosse so you wont want to miss the choreography! (The star of this show, Kelly Swanson Jaecks,  used to Irish dance with me. She’s terrific!)

7) The musical Hair is coming to Enlightened Theatrics in Salem. Weds-Sun  July 29-August 16. 7:30pm evenings, 2:30pm Sunday matinees.  Salem’s Historic Grand Theatre   191 High St.

8) Riverdance is coming to the Keller Auditorium in Portland November 20 – November 22, 2015. If you want to go as a group to this show I am purchasing some tickets for Saturday November 21. Seven people so far have expressed interest so please let me know right away if you want to get tickets. I need to purchase 10 tickets for a group rate and am waiting for response from the ticket office about pricing.

That’s all for now. Happy 4th of July! 

Yours in tap,

Stacey
