Tap tap tap tap tap...Tap City!

It's the 25th Anniversary of the remarkable American Tap Dance Foundation. As expected, there's so much to tap impresario Tony Waag's annual Tap City fest in New York--classes for all ages and levels of experience, performances, film screenings, a boat ride--that a tap lover's head can swim. Just pop over to this link and start your journey.

A couple of new things I'm looking forward to:

Tuesday, July 10 (7pm)
The Tap City Tap Competitions is the first of its kind that specializes in the many diverse styles, modes, grooves, and musical time signatures of tap dance. The Tap City Tap Competitions will focus on three different styles to be announced early enough for the dancers, teachers and choreographers to prepare. Because our interests lie in the advancement of this art form, we aim to further the perception and the presentation of Tap Dance in a comprehensive manner by demanding only excellence in execution, interpretation, musicality and choreography. Each participant will critiqued by an expert panel of judges.
