Tap It Out is a free, public and outdoor event often presented at the end of Tap City, the New York City Tap Festival.

Imagine a chorus of hundreds of tapping feet performing an a cappella choreography weaving together several tap dance styles and vernacular movement. Tap City participants will rehearse throughout the week of the festival to create this explosion of tones and rhythms. Tap It Out is conceived and created by the mayor of Tap City Tony Waag and is co-directed and staged by dancer/choreographer Lynn Schwab.

If you are registered in the Adult or Pre-Professional Program at Tap City, you have the opportunity to participate in this event as it is included in your package! Once you enroll, you will receive detailed instructions in the Spring. Each dancer will dance on their own platform, which will be supplied by Tap City, and, will learn their part of the presentation in advance via YouTube. Group rehearsals will take place during the day Monday, July 9th - Thursday, July 12th and are designed around your regular class schedule. (see your program schedule)

If you register for the Youth Program you have the option of participating in the tail end of this event where everyone performs the Shim Sham Shimmy. Details will be announced in February, 2018.
