Tap City, the New York City Tap Festival will return for its 23rd year Monday, July 3 through Saturday, July 8, with special events, local and international tap dance artists, choreographic residencies, and master classes. Tap City, produced by The American Tap Dance Foundation, is the week-long celebration of tap dance which returns to New York City each July.

“We’re thrilled to see tappers from near and far returning to New York to join us at Tap City. The Festival is a great tradition, and we’re excited to be back live for the second-year, post-pandemic,” said Tony Waag, ATDF Executive/Artistic Director.

This year’s events will kick off at The American Tap Dance Center, 154 Christopher Street in New York’s historic Greenwich Village, with Festival students, teachers, staff & guest artists gathering for a “Meet & Greet” and film presentation celebrating 23 years of Tap City. This welcoming Open House, on July 3, will be followed by a Copasetic Boat Ride around Manhattan on July 5; the return of Tap Treasures, a walking tour of New York’s famed tap dance landmarks on July 6; and, at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre, Symphony Space, ATDF’s Tap Future concert and Tap Dance Awards on July 7, and Rhythm in MotionTap City’s boundary breaking tap dance concert performance on July 8.

The Copasetic Boat Ride will be on Wednesday, July 5. The boat boards at 6:30pm, sails at 7:00pm, and returns at 10:00pm.

Historic details and a fun, interactive discussion take place at each landmark – a walk down memory lane. Tickets: General $25 (In Advance) $30 (On-Site) 

On Friday July 7, enjoy the Tap Future Concert and the ATDF Tap Dance Awards. Tap City puts ALL their students on stage with newly minted work from the Tap City 2023 Residencies, selected works created by ATDF students and faculty with surprise guests.
