Cinderella re-imagined in youth tap ensemble showcase 'If the Shoe Fits'
July 30, 11:42 AMMinnesota Fringe Festival Examiner
Michelle Storm

Dance will rock the Fringe with If the Shoe Fits, a youth oriented ensemble piece, co-created and directed by sisters Ellen Keane and Cathy Keane Wind. If the Shoe Fits is a modern retelling of the classic Cinderella story, replete with sports action, a band of rhythm gypsies, and “killer dancing in all types of shoes,” according to Ellen Keane. Tap, ballet, and modern dance styles are featured.

Keane Sense of Rhythm, a non-profit training and performance organization, are “rhythm tappers on a mission.” The group’s mission is “to preserve, present, create, and expand the boundaries of American Tap Dance.” The Keanes founded the group in 1997.

To create If the Shoe Fits, the sisters researched Cinderella stories from different cultures. Keane explains, “Since we are working with young people, we wanted to take a familiar concept and twist it a bit. We discovered the most universal elements in Cinderella to be the presence of a mentor, a support group, magic, a feeling of powerlessness, and a bride test. We replaced the bride test with a talent contest.”

If the Shoe Fits addresses gender stereotypes and what are acceptable boy and girl activities. “Our mentor is a chameleon type figure comfortable in any skin. The king is "Coach," and the queen is a ballerina," describes Keane.

Unique to this piece is its open casting. Any dancer can play any part, regardless of gender. “We have created a safe place for the dancers,” states Keane. “In rehearsal, all the participants get to experiment and take turns playing the leads. We have not yet cast the show. We want our leads to bubble up and present themselves.” The piece is kid and GLBT-friendly.

The creative process has been both intense and productive. The Keanes developed the story and chose music to carry their ideas. Fifteen hours went into sampling music. Music in If the Shoe Fits covers rock (Todd Rundgren), jazz (Jacques Loussier Trio, Wynton Marsalis), R&B (Little Richard), pop (Michael Jackson), and swing (Gotham City Gates).

A week long camp ensued to set choreography. “It was extremely fulfilling to work collaboratively with our passionate young dancers. Our cast has a broad range of experience,” states Keane.

The cast is a true community, bringing “enthusiasm, openness, flying ideas.” Older kids mentored younger kids. Asserts Keane, “It is the perfect show for all those young people seeking permission to use their own voices.”

If the Show Fits
by Karla Rokke Follow this reviewer

What a great show! But what I really enjoyed most besides the great dancing was the message of the story. Both my children, ages 10 and 11 when asked what they like about the show, both of them responded in their own words. They liked the idea that one should do what they love to do no matter what. They sang the final song all of the way home.

If the Shoe fits was a really nice recreation of Cinderella. I think that instead of the ball they had the talent contest was really smart. Some of the blackouts between scenes were long, and when the "Prince" was dancing behind the teacher you really couldn't see him, but overall it was good.

I thought this show was all of the above. It was a good story with a great message- everybody can do their "Ting". The dancers obviously had fun doing the show and engaged the audience. They even gave away tap shoes at the beginning of the show. Enjoyable for all ages.

The Dance Recital with a Timely Theme
by Amy Sheppeck Follow this reviewer
Rating 4 kitties they distributed free tap shoes to children in the audience and proceeded to do a "best of" version of their annual dance recital. It was cute. A little difficult to follow the plot but a clever way to incorporate a variety of dance styles and musical genres.
The kids in the show had a great time and my four-year-old granddaughter loves her new tap shoes. Grandpa had fun too!

This was a creative endeavor which was done in a clever way. The take on Cinderella was very modern and the characters looked as though they were really into it and having fun. I liked the dancing, but thought the lighting did not show the kids off to their best. Also, too much dark between scenes, but again, I really enjoyed the move away from the girl needing to be rescued and the boy being the big, strong rescuer. Very refreshing!

It was cute. The storyline didn't make a whole lot of sense. There were definitely just too many ideas all jumbled together to fit into an hour show. It was very hard to know what was going on throughout most of the show, but when the fairy god person was out it didn't even matter. She owned that stage and was absolutely incredible. She was by far my favorite character out on that stage, but the prince came in a very close second. You could tell that they have both worked so very hard, have established their characters, and have committed themselves to being that character. It was so wonderful watching them! Cinderella also did a very nice job, along with the entire cast. This show would be perfect for young children, but if you're looking for a show with a great storyline, this might not be your first choice.

This show was great. You can tell that the performers worked really hard to put it together and they pulled it off. The twist on the Cinderella story was creative and fit the cast perfectly. They brought great energy, danced together as a group and still managed to pay respect to every individual talent that they each had - from gymnastics to irish step dancing to juggling. This show mixes and matches every form of dance, rhythm and movement that you can possibly think of - showing that you truly, should never let anyone keep you from doing your "ting"

A wonderful and creative rendition of Cinderella. The energy of the cast was cohesive and everyone was having a great time and it showed. I loved the pace of the show. I think the theme that EVERYONE is great being themselves showed through with the boy with the cast on his leg. He took the show for me. Ellen Keane's creativity Shined Brilliantly.

Let’s be clear right from the top. This is a show for, by and about kids. I almost don’t want to be forced to use the “kitties” rating system. It’s comparing apples to oranges, especially as regards technical dancing and choice of subject matter. As a Kids’ Show I thought it was delightful in a number of ways, not least of which was the actual skill that the cast brought to their presentation. At least one, to my certain knowledge (she told me) was only six years old. I daresay the eldest onstage (except for one or two necessary grownups in character roles) was sixteen. Maybe seventeen. They weren’t Hubbard Street Chicago or the New York City Ballet, but they did out-do themselves with joy and commitment. The main styles were tap, soft-core hip-hop and some contemporary jazz/modern derived in part from ballet.
The production suggests several plot threads but fails to follow through with clarity. There’s a “new girl in town versus bullying in-group” thread. There’s a potentially sweet and innocent “boy meets girl and it’s puppy love” thread. There’s a sort of Billy Eliot “son can dance but his Dad wants him to play football, only he really wants to dance” thread. There’s a “hey let’s blow them away on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ “thread.
In the end, none of these are ever clearly resolved, except maybe the Dad vs Son one. Inexplicably, the Dad is one of the judges for the dance auditions and he embraces his son after the son does some nice looking stuff (but not the best stuff he did earlier in the show as a really impressive solo.)
But who cares? A lot of young people got on stage and acquitted themselves admirably according to their ages and levels of experience. The whole ending sequence was supposedly the auditions for “So You Think You Can Dance” but really it was a chance for everybody in the cast to have fifteen seconds of showing something they’ve mastered. And I was touched by one young fellow with his foot in a cast who did a breakdance routine anyway, all with the refrain of (paraphrase) “Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t do your thing (pronounced ting).”
Bring your kids, hang your high-falutin’ performance expectations on the rack outside the theater, have a good time, and wish you were young again. It’s a heart-warming show.

High Energy Youth Performers!

Loved this show of youth dance performers, some quite young. Great mentoring evident among the cast. The older teens carried the show with their incredible dancing and stage presence. All leads were fabulous! Interesting twist on the traditional Cinderella/prince story - held the interest of the 2-year-old on my lap for the entire performance. Colorful costuming and good blocking throughout, minor lighting issues. The tap number was the best - would like to have seen more! Overall a fabulous addition to the Fringe!

This show was so great and SO fun! The message is fantastic and actually brought a tear to my eye at the end. Loved the dancing...all of it. The talent show rocks and it was great to see the individual talents. I can't say enough about the Stars....the want-to-be ballerina boy, the beautiful fairy godmother and the AMAZING "Cinderella." I'm bringing the whole family to tomorrow night's show and look forward to seeing them again.... doing their Ting.

I did enjoy the show. I thought the tapping was excellent, and wished there was more. The Fairy Godmother stole the show in my opinion, and is worth the admission just to see her act and tap.
The rest of the cast did a good job, and their enjoyment of doing it showed in every number. And really isn't that what it's all about?

Great Show!

I was so excited to see a dance show at the Fringe with tap dancing!! I am a huge fan of tap and though there was a lot of it in this show, I did want more. The tapping was the best part of this show!

I really enjoyed the "Fairy Godperson" (ha ha) - the dancer was clearly very into her role and having a great time with it. There was also a tall male dancer with a blond buzzcut who was very entertaining to watch.

I personally wasn't totally into the show, but if you're a parent or perhaps a young person under, like, 18 years old, I think you'd really dig this show. I give it four kitties because I'm definitely not the demographic being aimed for here, but I can see that it would be very popular with the family crowd.

Also - the audience is invited to dance with the cast at the end!! If I wasn't so exhausted, I would have got up there for some double-triple timesteps or something.

This is a delightfully talented group of young people! It is clear that they worked very hard to put together this show that was a treat to watch. The pieces showcased a great variety of styles, and they fit together well to tell a story that underscores the importance of being true to yourself. The choreographies were well-crafted, and appropriate to the abilities of the dancers. Each cast member brought a great energy to the show. The young man who played the son of the ballet teacher danced with such exceptional skill that it was hard not to cheer for him as he danced. It was a delight to see such talent. The breakdancing skills demonstrated by the young man in the cast were also very impressive! This is a great show for all ages. Kudos to all of the performers on putting together a very entertaining and inspiring show.

Needs work
by Scott Pakudaitis Follow this reviewer

This was supposed to be a Cinderella tale told through dance. Although there were a few dancers who were a pleasure to watch - their faces beamed with the joy of performance, they were expressive and technically good - the show overall was mediocre. Scene transitions were too long & killed momentum, (Note to directors: you do NOT have to go dark between every single scene!) most of the choreography was uninspired, and the story plodded along. I wasn't sure if they were setting up a ballerina vs. tap dancer showdown or what. This piece required the dancers to act and most of them needed much more work in that area. (I think that all actors should take some dance classes and that all dancers should take some acting classes. Their performances will improve with this kind of cross-disciplinary training.) Kids may like this one though.

This was actually my first show (ever) at Fringe...I didn't realize it was kids who were the stars, so it was I was a little unsure if I would like it as much as I thought I would....

I thought the three leads -- the lead female, jock, and 'fairy' were incredibly talented tap dancers and shared the spotlight well. A little rough for opening night, but with one performance under their belt, I think the cast will not disappoint.

And a fun twist is the kid in the (real) leg cast, trickin' out with some awesome freestyle--great solo! :)
