IT'S AUGUST? REALLY?



Hello out there,

You ARE out there right? 

First of all, Tap City was a HUGE success! The classes, the Boat Ride, the Awards Show, Rhythm in Motion, Tap Future and Tap it Out, all were packed and I got such great feedback from everyone. Thanks SO much for your participation, support and hard work. The Work Studies, the TIO  Team  Leaders, the ATDF Staff, the teachers, the choreographers, the students and their families were spectacular this 18th year. And our audiences, wow, and the reviews! I couldn't be prouder at the moment.

CHECK OUT ALL THE PHOTOS BELOW on our Flicker Site.

Meanwhile, our summer Adult classes start July 23rd. Hope to see you around.

Opening Night -  World Premiere

The history of tap is an ever-evolving panorama of inclusion, adversity, and reinvention. This in-depth documentary is an absorbing narrative about a quintessentially American dance form- from its origins, to the historic and cultural events that shaped it, to its present day rebirth as a vibrant art form. Featuring archival footage of classic tap stars and highlighting the new generation of emerging talent, and commentary from historians, choreographers, and hoofers, this chronicle inspires and enlightens.
