TapCo is an elite ensemble of young performers showcasing tap dance, its versatility, and how it has evolved. Our dynamic show intends to educate about the history of the art form, while highlighting the cultural collaboration that tap dance was born out of. TapCo also presents work by international artists commissioned by the Vancouver Tap Dance Society, ranging from traditional to smooth flash, funk and swing. At your request, our 45-minute show is followed by a tap class for 30-35 students - we bring the shoes.
We have had TapCo at our school three times over the last number of years and every time they put on a high energy and highly engaging show. It has been a pleasure to host such an entertaining group who demonstrates that young performers can be true professionals. Todd Millway, Performance Committee, Sir Alexander Mackenzie Elementary
TapCo completely delighted our audience. I most certainly recommend this group to the ArtStarts community. Michael Cade, Executive Director, Chilliwack Cultural Centre
