Tap Treasures is a contemporary “mash up” of tap dance, hip hop, waacking, body percussion, soft-shoe, swing combined with vintage video and photographs remixed to classic songs such as Fascinating Rhythm and I Can’t Give You Anything But Love. Tap Treasures reinvestigates and revisits eight historic locations in Manhattan that contributed to the evolution of tap dance. As we celebrate an almost forgotten history of this fascinating art form, let us not forget the people, the places and events that have influenced, perpetuated and molded our very own American art-form Tap Dance, born and raised right here in New York City.”  
Tony Waag, Artistic Director/Producer
