About this grant
This grant will provide partial support for Tapology outreach programs. Tap dance is an enduring American art form that increases physical activity and enhances cognitive development for participants. The grantee partners with local schools and community centers to provide area youth with an introduction to tap dance and offers regular classes for all levels of ability. Each year, the grantee’s outreach programming culminates into a four-day festival that provides exposure for local students to the art and history of tap. Professional artists will continue to provide instruction for beginners, as well as more advanced workshops for experienced young dancers.
