Bay Area Rhythm Exchange showcases tap dancers
Rachel Howard
Thursday, August 14, 2008
John Kloss didn't discover a burgeoning tap scene in San Francisco when he arrived here in 2003. So he made one.
The lean, mustachioed tapper founded his own nonprofit, Stepology, and launched the Bay Area Tap Festival. Workshop attendance has tripled over the past three years. Kloss' festival-capping show, the Bay Area Rhythm Exchange, has grown so popular that it's been expanded to two nights this year.
"The people I bring in are artistic but also interested in the showman side of things," Kloss says. "You could plug your ears and have a great time or close your eyes and have an amazing time - but you want to keep both open."
Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, a tough, muscled alumna of "Bring In 'da Noise, Bring In 'da Funk," is "expressionistic, fierce, very clean dancing, yet very fluent," Kloss says. Sam Weber, once a fixture on "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," is a gallant old-school gentleman, "very regal, very associated with the balletic side of tap." Channing Cook-Holmes "shoots from the hip with incredible musicality," while Deborah Mitchell, "more of a song and dance person," brings a "Cotton Club flavor," which makes sense, since she appeared in a film called "The Cotton Club."
"I like to put all these dancers in a pot together and see what they cook up," Kloss says.
Sophisticated innovators like Savion Glover and Jason Samuels Smith are driving tap toward an ever-more complex musicality - and a new generation of tap stars are more virtuosic than ever. "The physicality in tap is so spectacular now," Kloss says. "We make jokes about the younger dancers coming straight out of 'The Matrix.' "
Kloss himself is a little more old-fashioned, practicing "classic tap," as he calls it. He says he fell in love with tap at age 16, when he saw Gene Kelly dance to "I Got Rhythm" in the movie "An American in Paris." Kloss, 35, trained in his hometown, Chicago, site of the country's biggest tap festival, the Chicago Human Rhythm Project.
San Francisco isn't about to vie with Chicago or New York as a hot tap town, but it's getting hotter here every year thanks to Kloss, and he sees the city poised to become a crossroads for Pacific Rim hoofers. "There's so much going on in Asia, especially Japan right now," he says. "Incredibly evolved rhythm tapping there. And here on the West Coast, we're geographically prime to bring that to the U.S."
For next year's Bay Area Rhythm Exchange, he hopes to import some of that fresh Asian talent. In the meantime, he says every tap performance he dances reminds him of the excitement he felt when he first saw Kelly. "The feeling of you and the audience both completely in the moment, making it together," he says, "there's nothing like it."
8 p.m. Fri.-Sat. $19-$23. Herbst Theatre, 401 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco. (415) 392-4400, www.stepology.com.

Formed in 2002, Hãhãhães is named after the Indian tribe Pataxó-Hãhãhães that once inhabited the city of Salvador in Bahia, Brazil. Lead by master Afro-Brazilian percussionist Dendê, the beat is always central, but it is tempered by thought provoking lyrics and sweet melodies. Comprised of musicians of various backgrounds, the groups' diversity permeates its music with rhythms ranging from Nigerian Afrobeat to Brazilian Samba to Cuban Pilón.
About Dendê
A former member of Timbalada, Dendê has been performing professionally since the age of 14. With Timbalada, Dendê toured all over Brazil, Europe and Asia, appeared on various television shows and has performed and recorded with such artists as Marisa Monte, Gilberto Gil, Carlinhos Brown, Yvette Sangalo and Sepultura. Having left Brazil in 2001, Dendê now lives in New York, performing and recording with his groups Hãhãhães, an Afro-Brazilian/Afro-Cuban band, Arrastão an Afro-Brazilian percussion band and Ologundê, an Afro-Brazilian folkloric music and dance group. With these groups he has toured all over the US and Europe. In addition to his own work, he has his performed and recorded with artists such as Mongo Santamaría, Jerry Gonzales, Daniel Moreno, Tico da Costa, Vinicius Cantuária and Alessandra Belloni.

"You got to be there to feel it!! This time I did girls nite out, ages 3 - 70, and everyone couldn't stop talking about it. Will be there to support Broadway Underground again, and again."

A Message from DeWitt Fleming:

Hello all. I hope you are all well. I'm doing a play September 5 and 6, 2008 in New York. It's about a kid who kills his stepfather after being molested by him for several years. When he gets older he writes a book about it. So the play is essentially about how the family deals with everything that's going on, and that went on. I play the guys older brother. So come check it out. The info is below.

Jane Goldberg's Shoot Me While I'm Happy: Memories from the Tap Goddess of the Lower East Side, with foreword by the late Gregory Hines, has just been published. The book is available in hardback or paperback.

If you order through www.janegoldberg.org, you will receive the limited edition bonus DVD.

Get your copy while supplies last!

In rhythm and schmooze,
Jane Goldberg, Director
Changing Times Tap Dancing Company, Inc.

LIMITED EDITION!!!!!

A bonus DVD with By Word of Foot: Tap Masters Pass On Their Tradition (1980) plus excerpts of Rhythm & Schmooze will be included, if you order the book through www.janegoldberg.org!

About the book...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is not a history of tap dancing. It is one determined woman's highly personal account of falling in love with and living the tap life. One of the linchpins behind the Great Tap Revival of the 1970s and 80s, Jane Goldberg tracked down, studied with, and performed alongside some of the tap greats of the twentieth century. In the process, she came up with a genre all her own Rhythm & Schmooze.

A romantic, Goldberg thought tap dancing would provide the most direct route to finding a partner like Fred Astaire. It did not, she discovered quickly. What she did discover, however, were her happy feet. Those feet, combined with great tenacity and endless curiosity, led her to ferret out a generation of show biz hoofers who had involuntarily gone underground. Shoot Me While I m Happy the title comes from an old vaudeville expression captures a wealth of memories both wacky and touching.

About Jane Goldberg...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One of the people who had a tremendous impact (on tap) was Jane Goldberg. Sometimes I think she single-footedly brought tap back to the city . . . Jane Goldberg presents people actually showed up! And we in the community felt that someone was actually looking
- The Late Gregory Hines


Jane Goldberg's memoir is like one of her famous tap-dance performances. It is easy, breezy, fast-moving, exciting, funny. You will learn things about tap and Jane that you cannot get simply by watching her on-stage.
