 Well, here we are. June is practically here already, and WOW, a lot has been going on, and now we have the Tap City Youth Concert coming up on June 18th and our annual Adult Student Showcase is on June 24th. Not to mention Tap City is just around the corner! Have you registered for your classes yet? What about tickets to the shows? The Boat Ride? How about Tap Treasures?

As usual, I suggest you check out our list of upcoming events. These things do have a habit of moving around.

CRYSTAL TIFFANY

I am a California girl, born and raised.  I spent my childhood in southern California, and just kept moving north after high school, spending a year or two here and there along the Pacific coast until finally finishing college at Sonoma State University, and starting my career in San Francisco.  I am passionate with a curiosity for life that leads me to try anything once.  When I'm not advising financial services companies on their technology as a management consultant, you'll find me reading fiction literature, seeing a good jam band play in a small venue, going to church or a bible study, or at tap class!  I moved to NYC six years ago, which was a challenging transition to say the least, but tap was the one bright spot that pulled me through it.  I took my first tap class five years ago at ATDF, never having any previous dance training. That was all it took, one class...the rest is history!
