IFTRA WORKSHOP

The American Tap Dance Foundation is pleased to partner with IFTRA:

 

Institute for the Rhythmic Arts
The vision of tap dancer, body percussionist Nicholas Young, IFTRA is a completely original educational structure based on cross training dancers and musicians. Our dream is to teach dancers about music theory, drum rudiments and notation, expose them to rhythms and instruments from around the world, and likewise to teach drummers and musicians how to move, engage their bodies and minds in a new way while introducing them to the world of percussive dance . We educate children and adults in the history, technique, notation, and language of these truly inseparable art forms. With this platform students will have the opportunity to study tap dance, body percussion, drumming, world percussion, and other forms of rhythmic arts in a cohesive nature. With a broad network of professional performers and musicians, IFTRA promises to keep you engaged with our core faculty as well as with guest instructors in a rotating masterclass series. Be on the lookout for our ongoing New York based workshops, The Rhythmic Arts Series. In these workshops dancers and musicians are brought together in the same facility to study tap dance, drums and body percussion. With live accompaniment for our advanced tap classes, expert guest teachers and clinicians, and a truly unique learning environment, there is simply nothing else quite like it.
