Dates:

Wednesday, July 10, 2013 - 1:00am

Dance/NYC celebrates the New York City Tap Festival, Tap City, July 6-July 13, 2013, and all who tap in our city

Dear New Yorker:

Today, tap artists Tony Waag and Derick K. Grant join Dance/NYC's NEW YORKERS FOR DANCE campaign, which features personal statements on why dance matters to our city.

With the release of these videos, Dance/NYC celebrates the New York City Tap Festival, Tap City, July 6-July 13, 2013, and all who tap in our city.

Tony Waag, Artistic and Executive Director of the American Tap Dance Foundation, says of the festival: it "makes a lasting statement about New York City and its dedication to this uniquely American form of art. We pay homage to tap dance by producing a festival in the city known for much of its major development."

Read more about the festival and all that is happening in NYC dance this week at DanceNYC.org. Click here to post your performance listings.

Keep tapping, and keep NYC dancing!
