Make Some Noise! Free Tap Dancing
West Harlem Art Fund
October 2 & October 9
Nolan Park - Nolan Park - Building 10B
All are welcome to the series of interactive Percussion Dance Workshops. We will be using rhythmic steps, clapping, and an occasional shout out to explore sounds and create new dances or re-invent old ones. No previous experience required. No tap shoes required. Stop by and make some noise!
Workshop leaders Megan Haungs and Toes Tiranoff combine elements of jazz tap percussion, swing dance, vaudeville, comedy, and puppets in their shows. They have performed at LaMaMa E.T.C., Town Hall, NYU, Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park, Dixon Place and Bryant Park’s Piano in the Park.
Music selections will commemorate the late Pharoah Sanders.
