Tapology provides free, quality tap dance instruction to students lacking the financial or parental support to participate in the traditional dance studio culture. Programs such as this have proven to be a deterrent to crime, drug abuse and teen pregnancy; while exposing the student to creative learning processes that positively affect traditional learning.
As young dancers grow and develop, rigorous training requires an advanced shoe that supports and protects their feet. Many students, due to lack of funds, wear shoes that are too small, or badly in need of repair. Your support will help eliminate pain and embarrassment for students who can earn a high quality tap shoe through hard work and dedication . Your support will also help fund the Tapology shoe bank which provides good basic tap shoes for beginning students participating in our after school and outreach programs.
Performances at assisted living facilities are met by tears of joy, smiles and thank you's from severely under served Seniors confined in assisted living facilities. A little happiness for many who are at the last station of their lives.
Summer Tap Intensive and artist residency programs allow students to gain advanced training beyond the studio, from working professionals, for a full week of hard, dedicated work.
Our Visiting School program, which serves more than 700 youth each Fall, exposes students to the art and a brief history of tap while encouraging them to participate in more expansive program opportunities provided by Tapology.
