    "Our daughter loved the week she spent at your camp. We wanted her to have a fun time doing something she loves - dancing. We didn't expect that her dancing was actually going to improve as much as it did during the short time she was there. Thank You!"

    "My daughter has been a camper for 4 years at ADTC. What most people don't know is that she attends 4 weeks per summer. That equates to 16 shows, 16 weeks of pure dance bliss! The first year we enrolled her for 1 week, she stayed for 4! Next year (2014) she will be a CIT and is excited for the new adventure."

    "ADTC has been a valuable experience for my daughter...she has met some wonderful new friends and teachers. She has learned some excellent new dance skills and the choreography is challenging and fun. We have been very impressed with the Friday night show and now much she has learned in a week. She looks forward to returning to ADTC next summer!"

TAP DANCE CLASSES

 

HISTORY OF TAP DANCE

During the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, the best tap dancers moved from Vaudeville to cinema and television. Prominent tap dancers of this period included Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Shirley Temple. In the 1950s tap dance declined, while rock and roll and pop music and the new jazz dance style emerged. Many believe that what is now called jazz dance evolved out of tap dance, so both styles of dance have many moves in common. But jazz dance evolved separately from tap dance to become a new form in its own right. No Maps in My Taps, the Emmy award winning PBS documentary of 1979, helped begin the recent revival of tap dance. National Tap Dance Day in the United States, now celebrated May 25, was signed into law by President George Bush on November 7, 1989. (May 25 was chosen because it is the birthday of famous tapper Bill "Bojangles" Robinson).

TAP DANCE AT ADTC OVERNIGHT CAMPS

The four core dance classes at our ULTIMATE Overnight Dance Camps are in hip hop, jazz dance, Broadway dance & contemporary or lyrical. Although tap dance is NOT offered as one of the four core classes each session-week at our ULTIMATE Overnight Dance Camps, tap dance is often offered as a dance elective during free time at these camps. So if you have tap dancing shoes, you should bring them! At ADTC ULTIMATE Overnight Camps, we always have excellent tap dancers on staff - sometimes even Radio City Rockettes! If tap dance is your think, you'll also want to show off your stuff during our "American Dance Idol" competition each week!. Click an ADTC ULTIMATE camp location below for more details!
