I’ve been going to Tap Dance Festival UK for a couple of years now, including the virtual-only event during the last 2 years of the coronavirus pandemic, and I absolutely love it. They always have an amazing international faculty of teachers and I always get HEAPS out of it. This year the festival is once again taking place online, but (very unlike me) I’ve decided not to take part this time. BUT WHY?
- I’m actually busy that weekend with a trip to Kew Gardens amongst other things, so I won’t be able to join live
- I’ve got SO MANY tap and musicality workshop recordings to catch up on that I really don’t want to add even more to the list (you know how you can end up stacking up videos to catch up on, and never actually get around to it??)
- Although the class recordings will be available for a month after the festival has taken place, last time I just didn’t manage to find the time to do them before they expired
- I’m happy to wait until I can go to the physical event, which will hopefully return next year
I recently purchased the recordings of two really helpful TDFUK classes that I attended last year (with no expiry!), ‘Rudiments’ with Adele Joel and ‘Drills’ with Robin Passmore and I’m going to set aside some time this month to go through them…I promise!
The virtual Tap Dance Festival UK takes place 26th-27th February 2022
