ABOUT TAP FAMILY REUNION

Directed by tap dance luminaries Dormeshia, Derick K. Grant, and Jason Samuels Smith, the third annual Tap Family Reunion is a five-day celebration of National Tap Dance Day & Bill "Bojangles" Robinson's Birthday. Events include workshops, performances and so much more! Taking place virtually for the first time in history, our programming is meant to highlight the intergenerational importance of our culture; celebrate our elders, and make our history accessible to youth and everyone in between. Come together for the dance!

This event is made possible in part by Debbie Allen & The Debbie Allen Dance Academy, The New York Public Library's Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, The Joyce Theater, Maurice Hines Movie producer John Carluccio & CINQUA | Creative Documentary Agency, TapTakeOver, Dance NYC, and Fractured Atlas. 

Executive Producers: Elka Samuels Smith (Divine Rhythm Productions) & Tamia Santana (The Brooklyn Arts)
