Tap It Out is a free, public and outdoor event that will be presented and performed a number of times in the afternoon on Saturday, July 12th.

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 created and staged by the mayor of Tap City Tony Waag and assisted by dancer Lynn Schwab. (see: artist statement)

If you are registered in the Adult, Pre-Professional or Youth Program, 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 7th - Friday, July 11th and in the morning on Saturday, July 12th and are designed around your regular class schedule.
