About this grant
The annual Tapology Dance Festival for Youth is a collaborative effort between the Flint Institute of Music and Tapology, Inc., to preserve the heritage of tap dance as an American art form. The festival brings local school children to the cultural center campus to expose them to the art of tap dance, provides workshops for dance students of all skill levels, and brings in professional artists to work with students and perform a public concert. The purpose of this grant is to support the guest artist fees and travel, and the purchase of a new dance floor. The festival and activities leading up to the weekend event are expected to serve nearly 2,000 students and concert attendees.
