Tap2You: Bringing New York City Tap To You!

Tap2You was created as a way to educate people about tap dancing, and is a new kind of dance competition.  Instead of rewarding bigger, faster and flashier tap routines, Tap2You is about rhythm, musicality and timing with a strong focus on performance and education.

Founders, Derick Grant and Aaron Tolson, invite you to be apart of this inaugural event in Lowell, MA.

Join us as we build the bridge between the competition world and the professional tap community.
