Summer Tap Dance Intensive in Paris this July


This year, underground New York tap icon Roxane Butterfly, will host her summer tap dance session in Paris (:it was held for 8 years at the Jimmy Slyde Institute Barcelona in Spain). It will run July 4th to 8th from 11am to 2pm at Juste Debout School. This workshop is geared towards tap dance professionals who wish to perfect their musicality, leadership skills on a live-music band stand, interprative qualities, pedagogic tools, movement and rhythm flow. Classes are taught in the spirits of the great jazz practionners known as the Original Hoofers but also highlight more contemporary areas and tendancies in the field, far from the clichés of Musicals or Stomp forever remakes. The 5 days workshop will be complemented by a serie of live-music dance events at night.

Confirmed Stages:
– TAPmatazz Night and Jam, July 5th at CIRQUE ELECTRIQUE
– Paris Open Tap Stage, July 7th at SHAKIRAIL
