Tap Into A Cure’s “THE AFRICA PROJECT” is back for another amazing year of classes and showcase. This will be our fourth year in the City of Champions, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
We have brought together another exciting year of tap dance, returning to us for a second year New York City’s amazingly talented Jason Samuels Smith, New York is also sending us the incredible Michela Marino - Lerman, Los Angeles California will be proudly represented with the unique talent of Christopher Broughton and the founder of THE AFRICA PROJECT and Tap Into A Cure, Edmonton’s own Andrew Merrigan. We have also included our hip hop friends again this year, as hip hop roots derive from tap dance we feel compelled to include this art form in our workshop. The Rock Steady Crew is sending us the very talented Ynot !
We have added an advisory board, the addition to our family are Bril Barrett, Steffan Clemente, Elka Samuels Smith and Jason Samuels Smith. Upon the advice of our board we have change our dates for the workshop and showcase, so please be aware that this year our showcase will be on a Saturday night and the workshop runs from Wednesday to Friday. We have also made our packages more affordable. There are three packages of tap dance for you to choose from ranging in prices of $80 to $240. And our Hip Hop classes are below $100.
Last year the world renown “Mr. Wiggles” Steffan Clemente joined us for 3 days of classes and made history on our stage with a battle of hip hop and tap between himself and Jason Samuels Smith. The jaw dropping performance was absolutely mesmerizing, and brought the house down! The Magical Rhythms Showcase will be back at a new location this year, but promises to be as jaw dropping as last year. Check our website for info coming real soon and some exciting additions to our showcase family! This year’s show will absolutely blow you away.
We need your support to help build the dream of building the Dr. Jeni LeGon Library and Music Room in Mukeu, Kenya. Hope we will see you in August, it will be so much fun, to much to miss!
