Isaac Stauffer, from the green fields of Iowa, grew up dancing since the age of 4. His childhood training took place at Stairway to the Stars with Aerial Energy, who brought in many guest artists and working with Tyler Haydon of Tap Dogs really solidified his interest in tap for the future. He furthered his education at the University of Iowa where he worked with many award winning choreographers and received his BA in Dance and Elementary Education. After his time at Iowa and a dance tour to the Dominican Republic, Los Angeles, and Chicago, he fell in love with the city and arrived permanently to pursue his tap dream. Chicago Tap Theater’s innovative and advanced rhythmic style really intrigued him. In 2004, he received the honor to guest artist in CTT’s LoveTaps and hasn’t looked back. The thrill of performing to live music with CTT’s unique approach to concert tap has brought him back time and time again as he begins his sixth season with Chicago Tap Theatre!
