Teen Tap Ensemble and Studio Exchange
Our teen ensemble was formed in 2017 as an opportunity for ambitious tap dance kids to train, perform and learn how to work with live music. Our teens have performed at the Mann Music Center, the Girard Avenue Street Festival, the Clef Club, North Community Victim Services and National Tap Dance Day celebrations. Our teens also participate in an annual summer intensive with live music accompaniment.
In 2019, the ensemble programming expanded to include an educational exchange with TapQRO in Queretaro, Mexico. We welcomed five students from Queretaro for a week of training and a performance, and in the next year, we plan to send a few students to TapQRO!
