We are pleased to announce New Jersey Tap Ensemble’s Hot Taps is returning this summer for 3 weeks in July - August at South Orange Performing Arts Center, South Orange, NJ

With funding support from the George A. Ohl Jr., Trust and the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, NJTAP is thrilled to offer this exciting, fun-filled, educational tap dance camp to children from all communities of NJ.  Children ages 8-15 will not only have an opportunity to learn or advance their tap dance skills but also meet top professionals in other industries in the community to broaden their horizons. 

This affordable, wonderful summer camp not only advances the mission of New Jersey Tap Ensemble to preserve and promote the American art form of rhythm tap dancing, but also strongly supports our belief that art should be a part of the educational and human experience.  Developing life skills, a positive self-image, embracing inclusion and acceptance of others, learning to tap dance and just having fun is the hallmark of this camp!
