On Tap: Nation’s Top Kid Dancers

On January 22, at 2 p.m., Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts continues its FamilyFun Series with Tap Kids. Directed and choreographed by Lisa Hopkins, Tap Kids features eight of the nations most talented young tap dancers that take to the stage in a rousing, joyous celebration of American youth culture.

The show loosely traces a day in the life at school on the day of the school dance. In a series of musical vignettes, TAP KIDS tells the story of a group of school kids facing challenges both mundane and momentous as they prepare for the big school dance at the end of the day. With an original score that ranges from pop and funk to jazz and Broadway, Tap Kids takes this traditional dance form to new heights in a hip, contemporary, and uplifting performance that has wowed audiences of all ages.

Tickets are $15-$8; the show is at the Walt Whitman Theatre on the campus of Brooklyn College (one block from junction of Flatbush & Nostrand avenues). For more information, call 718-951-4500 or visit
