Boston-based Tap Ensemble Subject:Matter comes to the Bandwagon Summer Stage

BRATTLEBORO — Next Stage Arts brings Boston-based tap dance ensemble Subject:Matter to the Bandwagon Summer Stage, on Saturday, July 8 at 6 p.m. The performance will take place at the New England Center for Circus Arts (NECCA), 10 Town Crier Drive, in Brattleboro.

“Tap dance is an American invention, and Subject:Matter are masters of the craft,” Keith Marks, executive director of Next Stage Arts, said in a news release. “The pairing of a jazz trio with tap dance is an exciting way to present dance to our community. The audience loved them the last time they were here, and we are responding to the community asking us to bring them back.”

Subject:Matter brings an assortment of music from their varied musical catalog, including jazz standards from their show Songbook, funk tunes from their show Blowout, and new music from their upcoming premieres this fall.

This performance is funded in part by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies.
