Enjoy “a sweeping ride through contemporary swing dance” (The New York Times) with Penn Live Arts audience favorite and tap superstar Caleb Teicher. In this Philadelphia premiere, "one of the brightest lights in tap today" (The New Yorker) is joined by collaborators Evita Arce, LaTasha Barnes and Nathan Bugh and more stellar dancers for Lindy Hop choreography and improvisation, all set to live music by the Eyal Vilner Big Band. It “gave me the most joy of any dance production in 2021,” praised a critic for The New York Times, and you’re sure to agree when the incredible show ends with an on-stage jam session, inviting you to join in the fun!
