Stomp!




For our second show while being in London, we went and saw, "Stomp!" I have wanted to see this show ever since my tap teacher from BYU, Colleen West, told us about it and said that we had to see it. They were doing a show in Salt Lake, but I didn't get to go. But we went to it here, and it was awesome. Well, at least I thought so. Nate wasn't a big fan. He said all the noise gave him a headache. But, me however, being the tap dancer, musician, and rhythm lover that I am, absolutely loved it.


For those of you who don't know what it is.....Stomp is a group of eight people, 6 guys and 2 girls, who make music without notes. They make rhythm and beat. The cool part about it is the creativity that they display while doing it. They do percussion on everything you can imagine! They used sticks, brooms, dust pans, newpapers, plastic sacks, metal kitchen sinks, black inner tubes, chairs, their bodies, pots and pans, you name it, I am sure they have used it in one of their shows. It is cool how everything makes a different textured sound that adds dimension to the layers of rhythm. They also use their feet to make music too, kind of like tap dancing, but not really doing tap, instead just beats with their feet. The dynamics were amazing how they would go from super loud and then way soft then all of a sudden ending together all at the exact time. It was awesome. I was dancing in my seat the whole time and tapping my toes to the beat! :)
