4th Annual Tap Day Celebration

Tasha Lawson and Tri-Tone Rhythm Society have partnered with the National Music Center and Jaimie Hill & Tammy-Lynn Powers Memorial Foundation, to bring together the Alberta tap dance community for an evening of rhythm and expression.

National Tap Day was first presented to U.S. Congress on February 7, 1989 and was signed into US-American law by President George H.W. Bush on November 8, 1989. It is now celebrated internationally every year, from Tokyo to New York City and throughout Canada, Europe and Asia. Tap dance enthusiasts, students, and professionals come together to celebrate the art form with performances, workshops, tap jams and more. Tap Day is celebrated online, with over 27.5 million mentions on social media in 2018.

Honouring the legacy of Tap Legend, the late Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, over 60 Tap dancers from across the province gather to present an eclectic evening of rhythm. This all-ages event includes music selections of jazz greats, classical icons, and contemporary artists, performed by inspired youth and professional artists.

The focus of the concert is to develop a vibrant, inspired, and expressive tap dance community, to create a platform for the creation and presentation of new work, and to advance and celebrate rhythm tap and the percussive arts in Alberta. Tap Day is an inclusive, community-oriented event open to all rhythmic artists and musicians.
