Happy New Year!
2017 really promises to be a GREAT new year for us. We have been REALLY busy preparing a roster of amazing events and performances, some large some small, some indoor & some out-of-doors, some in places we've been before and some in exciting venues that are new to the ATDF.
We have numerous studio events coming up at the American Tap Dance Center including special Master Classes for both our Youth & Adult Programs, Tap Talks & Tap Films, our semi-annual Winter Tap Intensive and our second Sound Cypher Tap Jam.
Also, our newly formed Adult Student Task Force (see below) continues to meet and grow. Contact me if you're interested in attending the next discussion & meeting on January 6th, 2017.
In the spring we are participating in the annual Dance Parade on May 20th and on May 21st we will be celebrating National Tap Dance Day with a Tap Attack. March 29-April 3 is Rhythm in Motion and Tap City is coming up July 9-15, 2017.
Please be sure to check out our ongoing list of events for updates at: NEW & NEXT
Meanwhile, keep those screws in tight! We are on a roll!
