About Hot Foot Honeys
The Hot Foot Honeys is Memphis’ first and only professional tap company. Founded in 2012, the Hot Foot Honeys preserve, promote, and perform rhythm tap dance in Memphis and the Mid-South. From classic Broadway-style tap to today’s cutting-edge, rhythmically complex hoofing, the Honeys offer up to ten dancers and a wide range of energetic shows.
The Honeys enjoy collaborating with other artists in all genres of music and dance. Collaborators include Artistik Approach, Inis Acla School of Irish Dance, Phi Beta Sigma, Jaukeem Balcom, Wayne M. Smith, Deneka Lewis, Jeremy Shrader, Steven Prince Tate, Knowledge Nick, and Gerald Stephens. The Honeys have also performed as guest artists with Inner City South, Mystic River Dancers, Bridging Souls Productions, and the Young Actors Guild Dance and Theatre Academy.
Recently, the Honeys have produced “Song & Dance: A Tap Tribute to Great Voices” at the Evergreen Theatre and “Honeys on Tap!” at the Buckman Performing Arts Center, both to rave reviews and growing audiences.
The Hot Foot Honeys are committed to sharing the joy of tap dance with the region, and they offer tap workshops for all levels of tap dancers, including those with no tap experience. They've performed at a variety of venues and events, including RiverArtsFest, Memphis Farmers Market’s Annual Barnyard Ball, Memphis’ Jewish Community Center, the Junior League’s annual fundraiser, Memphis Women’s Theatre Festival at Hattiloo Theatre, and the Mtenzi Museum. Company members also surprise audiences by popping-up at various Memphis venues doing tap improv, including Ernestine and Hazel’s during Sunday night jazz and the Rhumba Room during Saturday night swing.
