Tap dancers are busy doing amazing things all over the world. Here is a sampling of the stories and announcements that have caught my eye:
Here are some of the tap stories and announcements I’ve been reading this week. Let me know if there are others you think I should add:

If you have posted a tap event on Facebook, be sure to invite me and I’ll add it as the date approaches.
In keeping my ear to the ground for tap (no pun intended) I recently stumbled across 3 articles promoting the Chicago Tap Theatre performance scheduled for this weekend. You can use any of the links below to learn more about this performance.
Also, if you’re in the area, I strongly urge you to come out in support of this organization!
Twenty-First Century Tap
I enjoyed this article because of the way it shared some of the early struggles that “Tap Dogs” faced. Hats off to Dein Perry & his Australian troupe for all they have done to bring tap to the masses in a fun and innovative way. Just click the image above to read the article.
It looks like Sydney, Australia gets to enjoy 5 weeks of these guys…Ireland, not so much.
Strictly Tap Dance Fever will arrive at The Mandela at Joburg Theatre in a little over a month and the buzz is already starting to build! Especially now that it has been announced that African Tap and Modern Dance Champion Amor Vittone will be joining the show.

I’m just hoping for a U.S. tour soon!
