Tappenstance is an innovative Washington, D.C. based rhythm tap company dedicated to maintaining the legacy of tap dancing while expanding the boundaries of traditional tap. The company works, choreographed by director Heidi Schultz, showcase diverse musical styles from electronica to rock, reggae to R&B and incorporate elements of other dance styles from hip hop to tango. Tappenstance is designed for intermediate-level adult tappers who want to improve their technique and performance skills. Tappenstance offers tappers a chance to preserve and promote the unique American art form of tap dance while growing as individual dancers.
