This is a show in which dancing and singing is a vital part of every character - however there are several characters that do not dance!
For the rest, tapping is a key feature of the show and we will be casting the dancing cast in 2 or 3 dance groups so we can include as many people as possible, at different skill levels. Of course, EVERYONE will have to sing. And dance. At the same time.
