North Carolina Rhythm Tap Festival Faculty Concert 

Take advantage of the rare opportunity to see some of the best tap dancers in the world together on one stage at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro, Saturday, June 8 at 7:30 pm.

The festival artists will take the stage with the accompaniment of a live jazz band.

A tap performance in an intimate venue like The ArtsCenter is a special thing. You can count on each of the artists to be engaging, familiar, and compelling like a skilled storyteller, breezing through cool and impressive rhythms with virtuosity.

Faculty performers include Jason Janas, Michelle Dorrance, Derick Grant, Nicholas Young and Chloe Arnold.
