Entertaining, Youthful, Dancing, Beatboxing, Energetic

See it if Meant for kids and families, it's a not a play, it's an exuberant tap dance and beatboxing concert that's fun, lighthearted and youthful.

Don't see it if You don't like tap dance and beatboxing, or if you mind an audience full of small kids and parents.

"If a show’s success can be measured by the number of happily shrieking children in the audience, then 'Untapped!' was a big hit...Is choreographic invention too much to expect from family entertainment?...On the other hand, if that’s what it takes to get youngsters enraptured with dance, so be it."

"'Untapped!' is a cheap and cheerful, mildly rowdy show which puts a spring in one’s step...The overall aesthetic of 'Untapped!' is a bit hoot and holler, a bit of cheese but is not an untalented affair...'Untapped!' is not for everyone...but it deserves commendation for providing an accessible, energizing, all-ages show that delights, and makes you want to take a tap class."

"The New Vic's latest offering is more high-energy concert than plot-filled theater performance—but what lacks in storyline, it makes up for in wholly engaging athletic and vocal feats...'Untapped' isn't without its share of laugh-inducing moments...kids and adults alike will walk away with serious respect for the creative capacity of this tireless cast—and perhaps some inspiration to learn a few moves of their own."

"A superbly entertaining 60-minute show for all ages...The show puts forth a fresh style of tap dancing that's strong, contemporary, and highly virtuosic yet propelled by a loose, easy, natural energy...The show provides a stimulating and educational introduction to tap dance."

"The performers are all excellent...There’s a lot of muscular dance and tap here, and some real finesse moves too...These guys have virtuosity, personality, and creativity. They tap dance in sandals and flippers, and occasionally do acrobatics and other high-flying maneuvers. Overall, this was a very pleasant and invigorating hour in the theatre. I highly recommend it."
