TRP invites you to Tap Rhythm Jam Nottingham – the first ever tap jam in the East Midlands!
A Tap Jam is a place for tap dancers to improvise with musicians and other tap dancers. So bring tap shoes, instruments or simply your good selves along to experience the magical musical mayhem of tap dance as you’ve never seen it before!
Everyone is welcome whether to take part or simply watch and enjoy. Tap Rhythm Jams are open to dancers of all levels of experience from complete beginners to professional performers. We even have tap shoes that you can use if you don’t have your own!
There will be a group improvisation workshop before the main jam starts for you to try improvising in a low key environment and learn some easy approaches to get you started. The jam will open with a performance by performance trio Untold Rhythm with Jess Murray (Rhythm Tap), Dave ‘Stickman’ Higgins (Drums and Percussion) and Andy Metcalfe (Guitar).
