Although we normally hold our festival over the long weekend, we thought we would try to accommodate more people and their vacation schedules. This year’s festival will host over 10 faculty, along with Beginner Adult Tap classes for newcomers! If you would like to learn more about the festival, click here.

Our Summer Tap Bootcamp is Open for Registrations

Our Annual Summer Tap Bootcamp is back: July 17th to 21st! It typically sells out every year, and with the legendary Terry Brock and Jason Janas teaching our 2017 Bootcamp, we’re expecting spots to run out even faster. We’re excited for the unique fusion of their teaching styles, so bring a towel, water, and breath! Early bird registration ends June 1st.

Dancers will be divided into appropriate skill level groupings, and on the final day, there will be an opportunity to perform what you have learned over the week. Bootcamp is for tap dancers aged 11-18; tap experience is a must.

For all of the information about the Summer Tap Bootcamp, please view our brochure here.
