You can dance tap without tap shoes! Let’s tap dance to musical numbers!

We will hold workshops for people new to tap, hosted by Kaz Tap Company led by internationally acclaimed tap dancer Kazunori Kumagai. Workshops will start with all participants creating “shoes made of sound” so that they can tap without tap shoes. Everyone who takes part will share the fun of dancing tap, easily creating and performing their own rhythm through the sound of stamping feet. We’re sure you’ll enjoy this opportunity to experience tap dance culture and the profound artistry of tap.
