TapCo is Vancouver Tap Dance Society's Youth Performance Ensemble that stages show-stopping performances and classes to hundreds of enthusiastic and highly attentive young people every year at schools, children's festivals and other venues.


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
Thank you so much for a wonderful performance and class experience for the NRVC Daycamps. Everyone had a great time trying something new! Laura Grant, Recreation Programmer, Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre
