INDIA JAZZ SUITES (also called Fastest Feet in Rhythm), featuring Pandit Chitresh Das and Jason Samuels Smith, is an explosive collaboration between one of India’s foremost Kathak masters and one of the world’s fastest, Emmy-award winning tap dancers. The result is high entertainment which crosses all boundaries of age, race and culture — a blast of incredible speed and power, grace and beauty, epic storytelling and the pure joy of dance. ??After premiering in San Francisco in 2005, INDIA JAZZ SUITES has received extensive critical acclaim and has toured around the U.S. and India. It was chosen as the #1 Dance Performance of 2005 by the San Francisco Chronicle and won the prestigous Isadora Duncan Dance ?Award (Izzie) for Best Ensemble Performance of the year. - kathak.org

Call to the Tap Community

Dr. Prince Spencer, one of the Four Step Brothers needs our help!



He recently found himself in the hospital with an infection and managed to find the will and energy to start healing and get back home. While we are very excited about his progress on the road to recovery, we have learned the medical expenses and prescriptions for the next month or so are costing $600 a week!



The Tap Community has done wonders for many of our masters throughout the years. We are asking you to join us again to help us support Tap's legacy by sending any contribution you can afford to Dr. Spencer.
