Tapestry Dance Company presents April Fools!, April 26 – May 6 in Rollins Studio Theatre.

Tapestry Dance Company’s Artistic Director Acia Gray is pulling out all the stops to restage the original and classic tap dance works of stage and screen with the revival of April Fools–a vaudeville style work with special guest Datri Bean and The Butler Bean Band.

“We just haven’t slowed down in the last couple of seasons,” Aristic Director Acia Gray says of the busy schedule. “To keep our wrk relative and fresh in the local as well as international dance community, maintaining our organization and training facility here in Austin as well as ‘spreadin’ rhythm around’–it’s been non-stop.”

This high energy and eccentric presentation of April Fools that runs the gamut of tongue-in-cheek relevance to current events to breathtaking tap dance choreography with the incredible music of Datri Bean and The Butler Bean Band!

Tapestry Dance Company is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division and by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
