My daughters enthusiasm for tap dancing has increased since the festival. It was an invaluable experience for her to learn from different teachers. She thoroughly enjoyed the Masterclasses and Residency. Watching the performances at the show was inspirational. The festival has opened her eyes to the possibilities of Tap and ignited a new determination to practice and perform.
I can honestly say I would not be the tap dancer I am today without the ATDF and the experiences and challenges it brings to the tap community. I have made life long friends in my tap family and continue to improve my vocabulary with every passing year! Long live the ATDF!
I went in as a tap teacher wanting to learn new things to take back to my students and I have not only learnt new aspects of tap, I have a whole new network of people with the same love of tap to connect and share beyond the festival.
