Rehearsal Times: May 26th 7-8pm (Tappy Hour starts at 6pm before if you want to join, get tickets HERE)

May 27th 1:30-2:30pm (You can join us for a FREE Mini Tappy Hour after in the Lobby)

Both Rehearsal and show will be at the Uptown Theater | 120 E Main St, Grand Prairie, TX 75050

Practice along with the music below! At the show we will be using a live band but this is a great reference for the song that will be played for the show (the video says A Train but for this show we are doing it to the Entertainer)! There are 3 different speeds so you can work your way up to tempo for the show. Use the videos below to learn the Shim Sham.

Then check out our FAQ for all performance details you might need! Then go get your most fabulous 1920s outfit to shine onstage. You also get a complimentary ticket to our show so you can stay after and enjoy! If you have any questions email: arie@rhythmicsoulstapcompany.com
