Tap It Out
Saturday, July 13, 2013
12noon, 1pm & 2pm
Father Duffy Square in Times Square
Tap it Out is a free outdoor public event. It is a contemporary percussion and movement "soundscape" that promotes TAP DANCE as pure music, while consciously deconstructing the basic elements that propel tap forward. Worldwide students of all ages and levels, join to create a chorus of hundreds of tapping feet.
ATDF youth programs, for children and teens, teach students about America's own indigenous art form - Tap. Our distinguished faculty shares their knowledge of the artistry and history of tap with each student in a fun, safe and supportive environment.
Camp is for ages 5 - 11 with no experience up to 3 years experience. Student will have a chance to explore tap dance, history, arts & crafts and other percussive dance forms.
WHEN: August 12 - 16, 2013, 9:30am - 2:00pm
WHERE: ATDC, 154 Christopher St.

Get a Healthy Dose of Sunshine
Cigna is proud to support The American Tap Dance Foundation.
Now that the weather is warm, it's time to get off the couch and out into the sunshine.
Pack a healthy picnic:Summertime is the perfect time for a picnic. Kids love it. Adults love it. And it's a great way to enjoy the season. But instead of packing your picnic basket with mayonnaise-heavy salads and sugary treats, try to keep things light and healthy.
* A colorful array of cut-up veggies are an easy, healthy way to snack outdoors. Try carrots, celery, cucumbers and peppers.
* An assortment of fresh fruit is a refreshing and cool summer treat. Go seasonal with strawberries, blueberries or cut-up watermelon.
* Hummus makes the perfect dip for your cut-up veggies.
* Make your own healthy trail mix with unsalted nuts, seeds and dried fruits.
* Try a salad of leafy greens, strawberries, orange slices and toasted walnuts for a summer treat.
* Pick up mayonnaise-free pasta or veggie salads from your deli.
* Ditch the potato chips and pack a crunch with baked tortilla chips with black bean and corn salsa.
Lots of sunshine. Little cost.
You don't have to spend big bucks to have fun outdoors. In fact, there are tons of activities you can do that cost little to no money.
Here are a few ideas:
Hit the trails:Look for easy or moderate trails.
Ditch the car: Walk or ride your bike to run errands.
Dig in: Plant flowers or a vegetable garden.
Go jump in a lake: Or anyplace you can take a dip.
Go to school: Use the track or run the stadium steps.
Scrub down:Wash your car by hand.

When: Saturday, July 6
Where: Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater at the West Side YMCA, 5 W 63rd St., NYC

At turns thoughtful, satirical and humorous, "Transitions" features routines inspired by periods of change and personal development in the life of its choreographer and director, Ryan P. Casey. While "The Tall & Short of It" portrays the struggles and successes of his towering, 6'8" talent, "My Manhattan" lampoons his culture shock as a pilgrim to NYC, and his former teacher, Kelly Kaleta, becomes his partner in a series of playful duets, "Just the Two of Us." Tap, poetry, humor and more intersect in this engaging evening of rhythm and narrative.
