Tap It Out
Imagine a chorus of hundreds of tapping feet performing an a cappella choreography weaving together several tap dance styles and vernacular movement. Tap City participants will rehearse throughout the week of the festival to create this explosion of tones and rhythms. Tap It Out is created and staged by the mayor of Tap City Tony Waag and assisted by dancer Lynn Schwab.
Dancers who purchase a Residency Package, Youth Program or Pre-Professional Program are automatically registered for Tap It Out. Other dancers may purchase Tap It Out a la Carte.
