Tap Teaser Six

Tap Teaser is a bi-yearly, open mic night for tap dancers and jazz musicians. We get together and we JAM.

Founded in 2008, Tap Teaser began as an informal performance outlet for tap dancers and jazz musicians, regardless of age, skill level, or style. Over the past three years, the show has become a true crowd pleaser, attracting lovers of tap and jazz from all over the Delaware Valley.

Tap Teaser FIVE in April 2010 literally rose the roof at the CEC, with an oversold-out crowd, (don't tell the Fire Department), special guest Monica McIntyre, and stand-out performances from Camden Creative Arts High School, Footwerx, Tapaholics Phenomenous, David Pershica, Ashley Bridgewater, PJ Pinkett, Loose Screws Contemporary Tap Company, Reggie Myers, Graham Phillips, Alexandria Bradley, and Brian Davis. Were you there? If not, you missed a heck of a show.

Tap Teaser Six is scheduled for October 16, 2010 at the Community Education Center. Want to join the program? It fills up quickly! Just email Pam to reserve your place at pamelamh4@gmail.com.
