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)
