The Twin Cities Tap Festival (TCTF) celebrates the incredible breadth, depth, and artistry of the ever-evolving American art of tap dance. The 7th annual TCTF Concerts and Showcase shines a spotlight on the dynamic and ever-changing art of tap dance. This year’s concert features live music accompanying the best in local and national tap artists, including Jumaane Taylor and Max Pollak!
Celebrating John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme with live jazz and tap dance, Jumaane Taylor’s Supreme Love displays the spiritual, artistic, and historical values that infuse human life, using a symbol of nature to transcend hope. Max Pollak will perform All in One, a solo performance of uniquely arranged drum rhythms, songs, dances, and stories that outline Pollak’s artistic evolution. All music is created live by Pollak, only using his body.
The Twin Cities Tap Festival celebrates the incredible breadth, depth, and artistry of the ever-evolving American art of tap dance. The Festival provides opportunities for dancers of all ages and abilities to participate in classes, workshops, and performances all centered around enhancing technique, expanding creativity, and experiencing this uniquely American art form. We aim to foster learning, inspiration, and innovation as well as provide a venue to showcase tap artists, companies, and choreographers.
