Dancers to perform at Community Center

Apr 29, 2013

Two On Tap marks the creative collaboration of two celebrated musical theater performers (and longtime friends) Melissa Giattino and Ron DeStefano. Their combined love for the beautiful melodies from the early days of Broadway along with the classic precision of tap choreography take center stage in their hit show "A Tribute To Song And Dance."

They will bring their delightful show to Washington at 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 29, at the Washington Community Center under the sponsorship of the Washington Concert Association as part of its current concert series.

Reveling in the chemistry and artistry of iconic song-and-dance couples like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, A Tribute To Song And Dance shows why those famous dancing duos continue to impress. They interweave their trademark tapping with audience favorites such as "Yes Sir, That’s My Baby," "I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter," "On The Sunny Side of the Street," "Tea For Two," "You Made Me Love You," "If You Knew Susie, Like I Know Suzie" and many other Tin Pan Alley favorites.

Both Melissa and Ron have spectacular Broadway careers in addition to their Two On Tap tours throughout the US.

Their fine piano accompanist will also be featured from time to time, playing piano favorites of the era.

Admission is by season ticket or tickets at the door. Students in kindergarten through 12th-grade are admitted free of charge. Admission is also free with the purchase of one season ticket for the 2013-14 season. For more information, call 319-461-6243.
