ABOUT THE ADULT RESIDENCIES:
There are four Residencies on four different levels. You can select one or two Residencies (morning and/or afternoon) depending on how intensive a training program you want. Students study intensively with a choreographer for 4 days, learning new or classic works of tap repertory. The Residencies culminate with a fun and informal performance by all the Tap City Residency groups at Tap Future, the All-Student Showcase on Saturday, July 15 at Symphony Space.
