Lost in the Shuffle: A live show and short film premiere presented by Choreo Records Tap Company.
The evening will begin with a live performance by the talented hoofers at Choreo Records Tap Company with live music provided by Nick Earl and the Choreo Records band. Nick is a three time nominee for Best Guitarist (Dallas Observer Music Awards) is joined by Canyon Kafer on bass and Chris Holmes on drums. Sip cocktails in the gorgeous surroundings of the Historic Texas Theater while enjoying some of your favorite jazz standards, as well as new pop hits like 'Alaska' by Maggie Rogers. Choreo Records Tap Company will lead the way premiering several new pieces, but we'll also take a moment to feature the "next generation" of Dallas tappers on the rise. A few very ambitious young dancers will make their stage debut and are sure to make you smile.
After the live performance, we'll premiere our latest tap film, Lost in the Shuffle, directed by local BTWHSPVA student, Julian Jordan. This new short centers around Sonny, a hopeful young performer with a sparkle in his eye and dreams of the spotlight. By some stroke of terrible fortune, Sonny arrives at the theater to find he's lost his ability to tap. On a journey to get his groove back before the curtain opens, our woeful young hero embarks on an adventure around the streets of Dallas, where he finds a variety of unhelpful characters, a girl that stops his heart and the meaning of life. Ok, maybe not the meaning of life. As a young filmmaker, Julian Jordan has an optimistic take on the human condition and paints our city with a touch of fantasy, giving the whole film a a sense of Moonrise Kingdom meets La La Land. Enjoy this touching and elegant portrayal of how we so often find ourselves seeking outside what we eventually discover has been with us all along.
Choreo Records was established in Dallas, Texas in 1958 by Buster Cooper. We hope you'll enjoy this evening of dance, music and film as we celebrate young artists and new endeavors with a nod to our roots.
