With an action packed week of tap and choreography master classes, jam sessions, dance-offs and special events, the ATDF offers something fun for all ages and levels and is the only festival of its kind in Australasia.Sample sessions at this year’s ATDF include a free beginners class for all ages and abilities, learn the Shim Sham: the anthem of tap dance, Cutting Contest: the ultimate tap battle, and a question and answer with Michelle Dorrance and faculty. The festival culminates with the Rhythm Warriors gala on Saturday first October featuring an eye and ear-popping performance array of the crème de la crème of the tap world and live music.
