Under the direction of Michelle Dorrance, the Tap Program at The School at Jacob's Pillow will run June 23 – July 6. Studio work includes traditional tap and cutting edge styles; music composition, both acapella and in collaboration with musicians; and work in both solo and ensemble performance skills. Dancers perform works created on them for the public June 28 and July 5.
Daily classes emphasize rhythmic structures, musical phrasing, articulated and relaxed approaches to the floor, and use of the full body. Music seminars, individual coaching, video viewing, tap history talks and jam sessions help develop each dancer's distinctive artistry while sharing new directions influencing the field today.
Dancers are able to attend festival performances, public talks, exhibits and master classes, plus study in the Pillow Archives.
Only 25 tap dancers age 16 and up at advanced pre-professional and professional level will be accepted.
