Hi everybody,

We are officially cooking now. Rhythm in Motion is, well, in motion! If you haven't bought your tickets, please DO so. We're counting on you now more than ever and we want, we need a full house. Twelve choreographers are presenting new work that needs to be seen, and heard.

And this year, we are also fundraising during Rhythm in Motion so check out the THREE ways you can help support the American Tap Dance Foundation. (see Below)

You can visit our new On-Line Auction HERE!
 
No rest after that! See what's happening in May, June & July!
