TAP CITY YOUTH ENSEMBLE

Selected Reviews


THE NEW YORK TIMES "…an expert group number by the Tap City Youth Ensemble…”

Tap City, the New York City Tap Festival, July 2008, Jennifer Dunning

DANCEREVIEWTIMES

"Following that was one of the evening's most sincere and communicative performances - members of Tap City Youth Ensemble dancing "Izzici," a South African Gumboot Dance. Their energy and delight in the vibrant rhythms pounded out by their heavy-booted feet made the most of Molutsi Mogami's choreography."

Career Transitions for Dancers Gala, November 09, 2009 Susan Reiter

ROBERTA ON THE ARTS

“The Tap City Youth Ensemble “Alumni” danced to Susan Hebach’s choreography, scored to Ellington’s “Caravan”. Again, the jazz was live, and the performance was replete with sophisticated attitude and steady syncopation. They ended with flourish and pizzazz.”

Tap City, the New York City Tap Festival, July 2010, Dr. Roberta E. Zlokower

THE NEW YORK TIMES "the Tap City Youth Ensemble danced Mr. Cromer’s ‘Opus One’ to a Dorsey big-band recording with happyéclat.”
