A world on tap

Cartier Williams at "Tap It Out" (c)2012, Eva Yaa Asantewaa
Get ready to get tap happy when, once again, New York City becomes Tony Waag's Tap City (July 6-13).

My favorite part of American Tap Dance Foundation's legendary summer extravaganza has always been TAP INTERNATIONALS, an evening that luxuriates in the worldwide, cross-cultural phenomenon that tap dance has become. Enjoy the latest edition on Thursday, July 11 (7:30pm) at Symphony Space:
A global community of artists that  include international soloists, contemporary tap ensembles, raw talent and leading tap masters, will combine tap dance with world music, body percussion, gumboot, funk, swing, step dance, vocals, film, and storytelling.
