Feet Don't Fail Me Now is the story of Rhythmic Circus, a group of desperately excited and uniquely talented tap dancers who are on a mission to do no less than inspire every single man, woman, and child on earth to find the hidden dancer that lives inside of them.

How did everyone in the group meet?
The cast of Feet Don’t Fail Me Now is a group of strange and uniquely talented friends who have been celebrating life, music, and dance in dorm rooms and on apartment porches long before they called themselves Rhythmic Circus.

The dancers first met as kids through the Twin Cities’ dance competition scene. First trying to out dance each other and later befriending each other in order to take their dances to the next level. They have been working on projects together ever since.

The band’s core musicians have similar childhood roots that date back to being on the same elementary school bus route. Throughout the years, they supported each other’s music, played gigs together at every opportunity and built one of the most celebrated local rock and blues bands in the Minneapolis area.

The two worlds first crossed at the Minnesota State Fair Amateur Talent Competition in the summer of 1998. The dancers and the band officially “found” each other backstage while waiting to perform at the MN Grandstand. They quickly decided it was necessary to join forces and started working on a project together that fall.

Other members of the band came from the group’s college years. They joined up with the core group of musicians while attending the University of Minnesota-Duluth to play local gigs in the Duluth area and eventually built a loyal following throughout Minnesota.

The group considers their final original member to be “The Kid” who is the younger brother of an old dance competition rival. When “The Kid” came on board for a show in 2009, Rhythmic Circus was complete and ready to take their show to the people.

The cast members of Feet Don’t Fail Me Now! currently all reside in the Twin Cities of MN and look forward to their 3rd National Tour of Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!
