- Shows for Seniors -

 "Crazy Rhythm, Fancy Feet" is the perfect entertainment for the retirement community. It is a fun-filled dance and music show celebrating America's diverse music and dance heritage. Our show is performed by the dynamic dance duo of Bob and Eva to recorded music. Dance routines included in the show are the Charleston, tap, swing, cha-cha, waltz, and a fox trot done in the style of Fred and Ginger. Since Bob also sings and plays sax, clarinet and flute, there are instrumental musical performances such as "Honeysuckle Rose" and "In the Mood" plus audience participation segments such as sing-a-longs and the game "name that singer." All of these are big "hits" with the seniors.

We have created 5 different shows for seniors using completely different music and dance routines since we return every year at many venues. A listing and description of these 5 shows can be found by scrolling down this page.






We are aware that there is a wide age range when someone is described as a "senior". We perform different shows when performing at communities which are 55+.

After our perfomances, we are told by both the residents and the activities director that we are one of the best acts they have ever had. The show is a "must" when programming your entertainment for the year. If this year is already booked, please call us when you are scheduling for next season or if you have a cancellation this year.

We have been asked for return engagements at EVERY retirement community at which we  have performed. If you are interested in seeing a list of communities at which we have performed, please let us know.


Program Specifics


Show 1


Cakewalk - It is he oldest American partner dance in the show.  Created by the slaves mimicking their wealthy owners, this dance was actually embraced by the owners since it is so much fun.  True to tradition, the male and female dancers try to “out-do” each other in the solo section.







Zany Charleston - A creative mixture of traditional and original steps hail the exuberance of the 1920s in this fun-loving number.




Tap dancing while playing the clarinet - Bob and Eva dance the classic tap routine, the shim-sham-shimmy. To add some extra excitement, Bob simultaneously plays the song "Honeysuckle Rose" on the clarinet.







A fun surprise in the middle of this routine shows the audience what the male dancer is "not" supposed to do to his partner when performing.





Waltz - Bob and Eva express the elegance and beauty of the world's most popular partner dance.  Enter another world when they dance to the theme of "Edward Scissorhands.".





Classy Foxtrot - The elegant sway of chiffon and tails recaptures the beauty and grace of the 20th century's most celebrated dance duo, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Bob and Eva dance to "Beyond the Sea."








Wild Swing - This boisterous number shows the precise rhythm, great athleticism and crazy antics needed for swing dancing. They do it to "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens."
