TIDINGS OF TAP! (2019 STREAM)
The first time CTT has ever streamed it’s warm and witty celebration of the Holidays with NEW introduction.
CTT HOLIDAY TAP INTENSIVE
December 19-21. The best holiday gift for anyone ages 10-18 who LOVES to tap dance!
Three days of Tap Dance Technique, History, Games, and Original Chicago Tap Theatre Choreography from CTT’s hit show, Tidings of Tap!, taught by CTT Artistic Director Mark Yonally and Rehearsal Director Sterling Harris.
Each level will learn choreography from CTT’s annual Holiday production, Tidings of Tap! As well as meet (virtually or in-person!) other kids who love tap dance as they do. Students will leave the Intensive with new knowledge, steps and tap friends! All students who attend will have the opportunity to submit a video to be considered for the Pre-Show of a future Chicago Tap Theatre live stream! CTT has become known for their inclusive approach to tap education, and this Intensive will be no different. Students will gain a greater understanding of this most American of art forms through daily lunch lectures and develop more confidence in their technique through games and activities. The choreography will be fun and accessible, and the students will leave with a little Holiday song choreography they can show off for the grandparents at Holiday celebrations!
Available in-person or virtual (attendance is limited to first 15 per level for in-person!).
Registration includes a link to view Tidings of Tap! (2019) streaming December 18 (noon CDT) through December 20 (midnight CDT).
