Gotta Dance

When: Sat., April 28, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., April 29, 2 p.m. 2012

For 30 years now, NCYTE—the North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble—has been a harbinger of the spring nearly as dependable as pine pollen and dogwood blossoms. Under founder Gene Medler's direction, this group of intrepid teens has collaborated with partners including Squirrel Nut Zippers, toured internationally, and commissioned work from a who's who of tap dance greats. Their concerts Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. feature guest appearances by Tap Dogs soloist and Olympic Games choreographer Travis Knights as well as local-girl-made-good Michelle Dorrance, who took a Bessie Award this year in New York. As always, the positive, high-energy troupe taps to hip-hop, classical and a live jazz trio. —Byron Woods

Price: $10-$15
