The Tap Factor - DSD Dance Center, INc

Director of DSD Dance Center, Inc, Dorothy Balaza Medico contacted Chris at the Tap Factor to host a workshop at her studio. The Tap Factor's In-Studio Workshop covered all necessary angels in two and a half hours. 

The group then put their boards to use and began using basic steps through guided improvisation exercises. That was followed by learning a short routine they would perform at the upcoming Best Buddies NY friendship walk at Riverside Park in NYC. 

The group took the first 45 minutes to build their tap boards and discuss their thoughts about tap dance and what role it plays in their lives. They also discussed how tap dance could be used to engage with their communities. 

After a great morning of dance, the Tap Factor and DSD raised $400 for Best Buddies NY! Professional tap dancers Jimmy Sutherland and Yuka Kameda also came to support!
