(Maximum likely requirements)
The following is a list of staging specifications to ensure the safety of the performers and to guarantee Those Tap Guys’ perform at their best.
Stage: A strong, well-constructed stage with a wooden, non-slip surface is vital for tap-dance routines.
Please note: Those Tap Guys may have to adjust their performance if the stage is not to specification. Strictly NO plastic coating on the stage.
The preferred stage size is 7m WIDE X 5m DEEP. The stage must be a minimum of 6m WIDE X 4m DEEP for dance only performances.
Sound: A quality sound system with USB input (subject to room and audience size). A sound technician will be required to cue music at specific points throughout the performance. The system must include at least 2 fold-back wedges placed in the front corners of the stage. Please no wedges in the MIDDLE of the stage as this blocks the tap shoes – kind of a big deal in a tap show!
Microphones: Stage must be set up with enough microphones to ensure the taps can be heard from all areas of the stage. A minimum of 4 x Shotgun microphones are recommended.
Lighting: The whole stage must be suitably lit.
Sound-Check: Clear access to the stage for 30 Minutes is required prior to the arrival of the audience for rehearsal and sound-check. The sound system should be set up and checked prior to this rehearsal time to ensure the performers’ sound-check runs smoothly.
