I enjoyed this article because of the way it shared some of the early struggles that “Tap Dogs” faced. Hats off to Dein Perry & his Australian troupe for all they have done to bring tap to the masses in a fun and innovative way. Just click the image above to read the article.

It looks like Sydney, Australia gets to enjoy 5 weeks of these guys…Ireland, not so much.
