Musical Theater

Musical Theater is ever evolving, and with productions like Shuffle Along and After Midnight musical theater tap is evolving right along with it.

-

  Whether you are preparing for a role or are looking to nail that next audition, the "New" Musical Theater tap class provides the tools to tap more confidently.

You - "Percussion or Poise?"

 

Us - "Why Can't It Be Both?"

You have the aplomb... Now make your feet 'da bomb!*

Community Class

Those who DON'T KNOW history may be doomed to repeat it, but those who DO KNOW tap dance history are fortunate to repeat it over and over again and on the left side."

- Tristan Bruns, Director, Tapman Productions

-

The best way to honor the legendary Hoofers is to learn their classic steps, routines and their histories, and the best way to learn them is "by word of foot."  Join Tristan Bruns for this tap dance community class and be a part of tap dance history by learning a piece of tap dance history. 

-

The Community Class is an all levels class, open to the public and is pay what you can - cash donations only.  All donations will support the Chicago Human Rhythm Project's Tap Scholar Program which provides scholarships and intensive education experiences to talented and deserving teens during the annual summer festival, Rhythm World.
