Tap Dance Training
Jimmy Slyde Institute

Sought after for her exceptional improvisational skills, tap dance artist Roxane Butterfly has been a leading figure on the world tap stage for the last two decades (both in america and Europe). Very first woman to win a Bessie Award (1998) in the history of tap, she represents a direct link to the generation of her mentors, the Original Hoofers. She is known to constantly push the art-form further while passing on the knowledge of her masters. Baptized “Butterfly” by legendary Jimmy Slyde in the early nineties, she is the only European woman who has had a recognized tap career in America and to have received high marks of artistic distinction such as a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship (2006)

She shares her time between New York and Barcelona where she  directs the Jimmy Slyde Institute, a tap training program she elaborated in 2010.

Roxane Butterfly is… a Bessie Awardee, NYFA sponsored artist, John Simon Guggenheim Fellow Choreographer, USArtists International recipient, Meet The Composer grantee, etc…
