Dance troupe Rhythmic Circus will bring holiday cheer to Science & Arts campus
The 21st season of the University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma’s acclaimed Davis-Waldorf Performing Arts Series continues Thursday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m. with internationally-renowned live music and tap dance ensemble Rhythmic Circus.
The quartet of dancers and live band who make up the 12-member troupe will kick-off winter celebrations with their sensational show “Holiday Shuffle.” Families with children of all ages will be amazed and uplifted by this evening of joy and positive messaging through music, dance and humor. This company last performed their show “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!” during the 15th season of DWPAS.
“This amazing company visited our campus and were immediately fan favorites,” said Katie Davis, professor of theatre arts and executive director of the series. “We couldn’t think of a better group to help us welcome live audiences back to campus. They will again offer a masterclass in tap dance for students and this time we get to enjoy their signature holiday show. Seating is already limited for all shows this season, so don’t wait, tickets are going fast!”
