The Roots of Tap Dance

Part of DELving into Dance History
Feb 21 & 28, 2021

Join us for our next Zoom workshop in this online series highlighting the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive site, presented in collaboration with Dance Education Laboratory (DEL). Ann Biddle (Director of DEL at Jacob’s Pillow) and Felice Santorelli (DEL Facilitator) examine the roots of tap dance as a distinctly African American art form, pulling from a growing collection of dance videos and multimedia essays contextualized by leading dance scholars and thought-leaders. A special guest tap artist will offer an embodied master class in the basics of tap dance and body percussion.
