Cats Paying Dues opened and closed the first session of the TED Fellows retreat back in August 2015. It was an awesome experience to bring tap dance to the TED stage and share the opportunity with a group of local San Fransisco tap dancers. We met them all the day before the show and put together a brand new piece reflecting on the unique nature of tap dance and the tap dance community based on those old standards the Shim Sham, and B.S. Chorus.
