Storyline

Tap Dogs, the all-male Australian dance troupe, have taken the world by storm becoming an international sensation with their sell out tour... leaving packed audiences gasping and howling for more! Tap Dogs put power, humour, high velocity and raw energy into tap. This is the show that hypnotises audiences with the thunder of synchronised feet. Six Aussie guys stomp their way through a dynamic succession of pulsating routines. This is testosterone tap! Written by Anonymous

Too Much Of A Good Thing?
3 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As someone who has always liked tap dancing, from the Fred Astaire musicals of the 1930s up to modern day Irish dancing which became popular in the mid 1990s with "Riverdance," I was expecting to enjoy this, too. However, I didn't find it that enjoyable. It was actually TOO much. I don't want to hear 75 straight minutes of feet hitting the ground without any or much music. It turns out to be just a lot of noise after awhile.

When I bought this VHS in '96 or '97, it offered the best stereo I had ever heard on a dancing tape, and that was cool, but you need music! Too much of it is the same thing over and over. The only change was in the set designs.

Sometimes there was some very innovative stuff, such as the quick routine with a dancer hanging upside down or one with a guy dribbling a basketball. That, and guys pretending to be welders with sparks flying out, sort of thing was fun to watch. It IS colorful in spots but without major changes in routines for stretches of 15-20 minutes at a time, it can get boring. By the time this was over, I had OD'd on tap dancing!
