The Festival has always been a great way to meet, learn from, and hang with guest artists who travel to Vancouver from all over the world. This year we have three ways of learning from our guest artists.
The Vancouver Tap Dance Festival is excited to offer a new series of courses for 2019! Starting Monday, August 26th, week-long courses with guest artists will offer students the opportunity to spend time learning new techniques, approaches, and content. Work daily with individual guest artists and gain progressive insight into their process, signature technique, and steps!
This year Andrew Nemr’s Tap Dance Freedom Summer Intensive will be held in partnership with the Vancouver International Tap Dance Festival. Add an extra week to your learning (September 2-6), with 30+ hours of training, a brand new curriculum, and receive a special advance copy of Andrew’s new book The Method – A Learning and Teaching Method for Tap Dancing. Learn more here.
Saturday and Sunday will include classes for all levels – Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Professional! Attendees will be able to choose to take an entire track, or single classes a la carte.
We’re excited to have a series of additional activities for festival attendees throughout the week. These will include a film screening, a moderated panel discussion, and open studios (where you can jam, trade steps, or practice what you’ve been learning in class). Check them all out here.
