The Australian Tap Dance Festival (ATDF) is about bringing the tap community and public together to learn, share, meet and enjoy all things tap.


What makes it special?

The ATDF selects a high calibre faculty from across Australia & around the world to fly in to conduct one jam-packed week of tap masterclasses, 5 day choreography residencies, and special events, ensuring there is something for everyone!

The ATDF is the only one of its kind in Australasia where participants travel from overseas and interstate to be part of this cutting edge festival.

Furthermore, the Australian Tap Dance Festival is held during the pleasant Spring season in Melbourne, the world's most liveable city

Are you a tap dancer?

There are masterclasses and 5-day residencies from beginner to advanced levels, for a range of ages

The festival is a once-a-year chance in Australia to experience something different and expand your style and techniques at an accelerated rate, in a high immersion environment, in a short span of time. 

The intensive nature, and access to our faculty artists at the top of their field, at this one place and time, plays a big part in the amazing experience you will enjoy at this festival.  

Being surrounded by like minded people who love tap as much as you do will really give you a sense of belonging and family here at the festival.  


..or do you just love watching dance?
We believe everyone should have the experience of the incredible feeling of watching and/or participating in tap dance.

‚ÄčThere are public evening events to watch including the Tap Dance Film Night, Jam Night with live musicians, Cutting Contest, Capezio Dance Off and of course, the Festival Showcase. 

If you've never tap danced before, there is a free public beginner class!
