National Tap Dance Day

Each May, Keane Sense of Rhythm engages the community by organizing an annual National Tap Dance Day festival at Como Park Pavilion in Minneapolis. The event showcases the wide range of skills and styles of percussive dance in and around the Twin Cities, from tap to contemporary rap, African traditional to Irish step and Hollywood Swing.

National Tap Dance Day features performances by KSR’s Youth Tap Ensemble, as well as students from the School Outreach Program, in what is usually their first-ever public performance. At past events, participants have ranged in age from 8 to 78, and have come from as far away as Duluth.

This event is free to all and typically hosts a capacity crowd comprised of student’s families and friends, dance lovers, and local area residents. We foster a welcoming environment and are always excited to host attendees as diverse as our performers!
