Tap superstar Cartier Williams will be teaching a nine-month workshop series in New York City teaching the art of Hoofing!

The series is presented by Cartier Williams Dance Theater, and will teach advance beginner/intermediate level students ages 10-18 how to “Hoof like a pro!” Weekly classes will be held in NYC on Friday evenings beginning on September 5th and ending on May 29th.

Tap students will learn directly from the hoofing legend while they explore rhythms, including African Congo Beats, Latin Rhythms, Irish Jig and more. Williams will help the dancers to work on their skills, learn new moves and refine their technique. There will be a performance for all participating students at the end of the series. Registration is required at cwdancetheater@yahoo.com.
