JUNE IS BUSTIN OUT ALL OVER!

Hi everyone,

The month of June tends to separate the strong from the weak, the pros from the amateurs and the doers from the no she don'ts!

At the American Tap Dance Center, we have ALL worked SO hard all season long and now we finally have a chance to shine on the stage and glow in the knowledge that we have something to show for it too! Our annual Tap City Youth Concert is coming right up on June 17th & then our Adult Student Showcase follows on June 23rd so get your tickets asap.

Then it's Tap City time folks! Now in its 18th year! If you haven't registered yet then you better beware, as classes are filling right up. And don't forget the Copasetic Boat Ride, the Awards Show, Rhythm in Motion, Tap Future and last but not least Tap it Out! Be there or be square. Times Square that is!

Always check our News & Events page because you never know what might pop up in the meantime.
