Transitions: An Evening of Tap Dance
November 4, 2012
Former Lexington resident Ryan P. Casey (bio) will return to his Bay State roots on Sunday, November 4, as director and choreographer of an evening of tap dance, “Transitions,” presented at Marblehead Little Theatre in Marblehead, MA, at 4:00 p.m.
The show, Casey’s first full-length endeavor, will feature original tap choreography – solo, duet, trio and ensemble work – set to a variety of music, from Dave Brubeck and Dinah Washington to Randy Newman and the theme song to the hit television show, “The Office.”
Poetry, cinematography, Vaudeville, hip hop and contemporary dance are also included in the program.
“The show is entitled ‘Transitions’ because I created a lot of this work during, or as a result of, changes in my life and my career,” Casey said. “Some of it was inspired by my pilgrimage to New York City; some of it explores how I overcame the hindrances and self-consciousness caused by my unique body type; and the show overall represents a shift into my new-found roles as choreographer and director.”
