A series of platforms forms the stage for five dancers in colorful garb who perform their version of a staircase tap routine in this tribute to the tap dancer Gregory Hines. Displaying great athleticism, the dancers run up and down the platforms, sometimes flipping over the top and reappearing without missing a beat.
