Tap Dance at ADTC

Tap Dance Videos

During the 1930s, 40s and 50s, the best tap dancers moved from Vaudeville to cinema and television. Prominent tap dancers of this period include Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Shirley Temple. In the 1950s, tap dance declined, while rock and roll, pop music and jazz dance emerged. Since many believe that jazz dance evolved out of tap dance, the two styles have many moves in common. The 1979 Emmy award winning PBS documentary, No Maps in My Taps, helped begin the recent revival of tap dance. National Tap Dance Day in the U.S. is now celebrated May 25, the birthday of famous tapper, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson.

Tap Dance Classes @ ADTC Overnight Camps

Whether you’re an absolute beginner or experienced performer, we have a fun & challenging tap dance experience just right for you. Although tap dance is not offered as one of the four core dance classes each week, tap dance is often offered as a separate dance "elective" class...so if you have tap dancing shoes, bring them!

And we always have excellent tap dancers on staff - sometimes even Radio City Rockettes! If tap dance is your thing, you'll also want to show off your moves during our "American Dance Idol" competition each week!
