Dust off the tap shoes and join Mavis and an unlikely group of adult tappers as acclaimed British playwright Richard Harris take us on an evening of laughter, love and passion at a North London adult tap class.
Mavis, a former professional dancer teaches the bumbling tappers but before the dancing she must mediate the dramas that erupt among this motley but loveable crew. When adversity, diversity, opportunity and ordinary come together, what is the result? A couple of time steps later and love and friendship are what really trumps this mix.
Three-time Off West End Award-nominated David Ball Productions brings you this heart-warming show that will have you tapping your way out of the theatre.

I hopped, skipped and two-stepped out of the theatre wanting to sign up for a dance class and continue the fun I had just had watching a dance class having a lot of fun…This is feel good theatre to the max. Southwark News
the play is a charming, feel-good story about friendship and perseverance against seemingly impossible odds that ultimately proves impossible to resist…. it’s also great entertainment – and as Mavis herself would say, as long as we’re enjoying ourselves, that’s the most important thing.
