Booking / Enquiry

Rhythm.Tap.Melbourne is Melbourne’s leading tap dance performance crew. They are the city’s original street performers of authentic rhythm tap. In high demand throughout Melbourne, the troupe are renowned for their unabashed onstage charisma, athletic edge and fearless rhythmic improvisation - and with the meanest tap dancing feet in the country, they lay down the beats of the floor like it’s nobody’s business. Led by Grant Swift (founder of the Melbourne International Tap Festival) and featuring Melbourne's own Swift Brothers along side some of Australia’s finest young tap talent, the troupe is a professional, versatile and high energy dance outfit. Whether you are after the sweet syncopation of a high class jazz act, the infectious rhythms of the African drum, or a high voltage urban street tap experience, Rhythm Tap Melbourne are a group that will deliver.

From a Rhythm Tap Melbourne performance, audiences can expect explosive, original, high energy entertainment. Perfect for any event from an exclusive black tie evening, to a roaring twenties party, these dancers know how to work the room and kick off an event to remember. We are experienced with working to a client brief, liaising with stage and sound crew, and working with musicians - from unplugged trios to full scale big bands. We are highly skilled at delivering choreography, staging and costuming that will support the vision you have for your event, be it 1920's roaring swing theme, funk/hip hop vibes, or an industrial street style.

“...a flurry of furious rhythm and dynamic choreography. Mesmerised, the audience were left stamping their feet, clapping their hands and calling for more. ”Red Bennies Cabaret Club, Melbourne

We loved Harry, Oscar and Grant! Very professional, extremely entertaining and lots of fun. The skill involved in their performance was amazing and energy required breathtaking (literally!). We will also remember for a long time to come the funny attempts of our friends trying to tap dance.” Leanne Neeland, Yarra Valley Chocolaterie

“(Grant Swift is) One of the most Spiritually motivated, Politically active artists in our generation. He has the guts to say what most of the world is thinking. His dance is truly inspired by a higher force.” -Jason Samuels Smith, USA - Emmy Award winning dancer and choreographer

"Grant Swift...has a flashier, more athletic style...fascinating to watch.” Jessica Nicholas - The Age
