Welcome to my first blog! I figured if I was going to write about anything, it should be about something I am passionate about! TAP DANCING! Most importantly, I don't just want to share my own rambling thoughts, I would love to hear what the tap community has to say! Of all the forms of dance I have studied, the tap community (tap family) is by far the most supportive of one another. I would never have had the confidence to actually put together a festival had it not been for so many people encouraging me and then stepping up to help me make it all happen. Words and ideas are one thing, unconditional support and follow-through are a whole other issue! Here are just a few of the people that encouraged me, supported me, gave constructive criticism, offered words of wisdom, connected me to people that could help further my mission of bringing a tap festival to Indiana, etc...
(Please note, these names are in no particular order of importance!! All are equally amazing in their own way!)
Andrea Trimmer, Molly Sipes, Gregg Russell, Sarah Reich, Jenefer Miller, Suzy Guarino, Megan Maltos, Denise Caston-Clark, Kandee Thacker-Mann, Avi Miller, Ofer Ben, Claudia Rahardjanoto, Tristan Bruns, Chloe Arnold, Cindy Hsu, Deanna Garner, Barbara Duffy, Prof Robert Reed, Heather Cornell, Debbie Dee, and the entire Circle City Tap Company Family.
Here is where you, the member, comes in!
I want to hear from you! Have you ever been to a tap festival? If so, which one(s)? What did you like about it? What didn't you like? Who would you like to see on faculty? What types of classes would you like to take? Would you want an opportunity to perform in the Circle City Tap Showcase? Anything I am forgetting? I want to hear about it!
I look forward to hearing from anyone that would like to contribute!
