Urban Tap will perform its innovative exchange of rhythms at the University of Hawaii Windward Community College's Paliku Theatre at 2 p.m. March 30.

Presented by the University of Hawaii Outreach College, Urban Tap's Full Cycle ensemble will feature some of the underground scene's most dynamic international performers in a powerful, groundbreaking fusion of dance styles, including tap, world jazz, Brazilian capoeira, African moves, break dancing and hip-hop.

The movements will be accompanied by drumming, percussion, cello, trumpet, didgeridoo, Indian vocalization, a veejay and a live video montage.

Urban Tap was founded by Herbin "Tamango" Van Cayseele in 1993. The sinewy and dreadlocked Tamango has been described by the New York Times as "one of the great tap artists performing today, a dancer of astonishing speed and lightness whose feet produce a rippling, richly complex cannonade of tap beats."

Tickets are $25 general and $20 for students, seniors, military, UH faculty and staff, available at the UH-Manoa Campus Center ticket office, or charge by phone at 956-6878. For information call 956-3836 or visit the Web site
