"Tap Dogs" is a tap dance show, created by Australian dancer and choreographer, Dein Perry. The original production of the show had its world premiere in January 1995 at the Sydney Festival in Australia, produced by the Sydney Theatre Company.
Due to the unique and original staging ideas featured in the show, the Tap Dogs are often recognised within the dance community, as having revolutionised the way tap dance is presented to a modern day audience and subsequently, different variations of the show are now performed in major cities around the world, with numerous dance companies attempting to emulate the tap style seen in the show.
Whilst the original stage show achieved international acclaim, the Tap Dogs are most famous for their performances at the opening ceremony of the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.
