American Tap


As a quintessentially American art form, Tap Dance winds through our history from Congo Square, through Minstrelsy, the Jazz Age, World War II and into modernity. Fueled by genius and challenged by adversity, it has undergone recession and rebirth to emerge vital and relevant in the new century. Not just an dance form, Tap is a mirror through which we can examine and better understand our American cultural heritage.

The program includes a special live performance by Ricky Huang and Michela Marino Lerman.
