FUTURE OF TAP BY CAPEZIO

2023 EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST NOW OPEN
Future of Tap presented by CAPEZIO will have a new look in 2023, with an exciting new format to gain more value from this unique experience, with valuable feedback from industry professionals and awards from Capezio®.

In 2023, there will be two categories to pick from:

A self choreographed dance.
Performers will be critiqued on their ability to craft a piece that demonstrates musically and expression through tap dance. We want to see your artistic voice through your choreographic choices, the music you choose should also reflect your intentions.

Improvised performance.
We will provide a series of Jazz Standards beforehand, from which performers will be able to select the tune they wish to dance to. We will be looking at how the dancers craft a performance on the fly that both follows the structure and supports the musical nuance of their chosen piece.

We will be looking at the dancers ability to craft a performance on the fly that both follows the structure and supports the musical nuance of their chosen piece.
