Hot Shoe Shuffle tells the tale of the Seven Tap Brothers, Spring, Slap, Buck, Wing, Tip, Tap and Slide who learn of the death of their long-absent father, who has apparently left them a fortune. The only catch is that to receive their inheritance, they must rehearse and perform his legendary 'Act' – the Hot Shoe Shuffle!! In addition, they must also include their long-lost sister, April, into The Act. The only problem is – she has two left feet! Hot Shoe Shuffle is finally performed triumphantly, in the tradition of the best Broadway musicals, featuring the big band hits of the 1940s.
