About the Show

Skylarks on Tap: With a Taste of Local Flavor is truly a celebration of local art. Dancers, musicians and a visual artist will takeover the Headwaters Theatre to showcase the bounty of talent that Portland has to offer. 


The Skylark Tappers will present a variety of rhythm and show tap styles danced to live music ranging from jazz to classical. The Skylark band includes musical director and keyboardist Jack Buddeke, Jeff Homan on saxophone, Rivkah Ross on drums and Perry Thoorsell on bass. Vocalist Anandi Gefroh contributes her signature smoky and sweet sound to the group.


As patrons enter the lobby of the theatre, they will be treated to a visual display of abstract mixed-media paintings by local artist Carolyn Cole, an honors graduate of Portland State University. Inside the theatre, audiences will be treated to an immersive experience of music and dance, featuring choreography to songs from Portland-based composers.

“As tap dancers, we are musicians and our shoes are our instrument,” says Judy Tibbles, artistic director for the Skylark Tappers. “We are thrilled to work with such talented Portland musicians who help us enhance our artform. People who come to the show should expect to be entertained by remarkable dancers and musicians alike and get a glimpse into the exceptional connection between tap and music."
