Father Duffy Square/Times Square

Broadway, W. 46 St. To W. 47 St., 7 Avenue Manhattan

Tap It Out is a free, public & outdoor event presented at the end of Tap City. 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 rehearse throughout the week of the festival to create this explosion of tones and rhythms. Tap It Out was conceived and created by the mayor of Tap City Tony Waag and is choreographed 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 6th - Thursday, July 9th and are designed around your regular class schedule. (see your program schedule)
