Twin Cities Tap

Classes. Concerts. Community. Sharing the rhythm, music, and art of tap dance.

In 2016 the Twin Cities Tap Festival brought together more than 180 dancers of all ages from 10 different states and Canada! At the lovely Cowles Center, our dancers took part in workshops and master classes with international tap masters, local professionals, and dancers of all abilities. Then we packed the Goodale Theater for three outstanding shows featuring local choreographers, national tap artists, and live music. Dance lovers from around the area came together to share and learn about the ever-evolving American art of tap dance.

  • "we loved it - we want more
  • "we'll be back next year!"
  • "outstanding performance!"
  • "I've never seen a tap show like this!"
  • "please add more classes!"  

So we're already planning for next year. We'll be bringing in world-class artists, adding classes, and expanding our performances to accommodate sold-out shows and jam-packed master classes!

We recognize the need to expand our offering to support the interest from our enthusiastic tap community! With three sold out performances, and full classes, you can help us thoughtfully expand the festival so that even more dancers can participate! 

Your support of the annual Twin Cities Tap Festival allows us to host internationally renowned tap artists alongside local artists and choreographers for four days of workshops, master classes, and performances. Your gift will help the festival continue to expand and offer even more opportunities for tap dancers around the region like: providing need-based scholarships, hosting a residency, or offering year-round programming to take advantage of visiting artists.
