POINT TAP FESTIVAL 2013 – A Hit!
Stevens Point, Wisconsin, August 8, 9,10
With an incredible teaching faculty from New York, Chicago, Boston and North Carolina, a wonderful group of students, and an inclusive, positive atmosphere Point Tap Festival kept the studios of the Noel Fine Arts Center rhythm-filled during the three-day workshop August 8-10. Dancers from age 8 to ? included: prospective students, current students, alums, professional colleagues, teachers, amateurs, and first-time tappers from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, New York, Georgia, Massachusetts, Vermont, Colorado, and Florida.
Saturday evening’s festival show featured performances by faculty members Mark Goodman, Lynn Schwab, Mark Yonally, Thelma Goldberg, and myself joined by Ryan Korb (drums), Dave Poffinbarger (bass), and John Strassburg (piano, keyboard, vocals).
Each of the classes had a chance to perform repertory material on the show: Lynn’s class performed An excerpt from Tap it Out! (Choreography by Lynn Schwab and Tony Waag) and my class danced and improvised to the James Cotton/Junior Wellsrockin’ blues, “Somebody Changed the Lock.”
