Tap City Tap It Out -July 13th... for the American Tap Dance Foundation's 25th Anniversary
Tap City's Main Event
Tap It Out is a free, public and outdoor event that will be performed downtown at the World Financial Center Plaza & Marina, on the afternoon of Friday, July 13th as part of the acclaimed River to River Festival. Tap City participants will join local professionals in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the American Tap Dance Foundation. Imagine a chorus of 300 tapping feet performing an a cappella choreography weaving together several tap dance styles, grooves and vernacular movement, as well as classic and contemporary new work performed by leading tap dance soloists and ensembles. It promises to be a explosion of tones and rhythms created and staged by the mayor of Tap City Tony Waag, assisted by Lynn Schwab. Show times are 12noon, 1pm and 2pm.
