PUTTING TAP DANCE RESEARCH IN THE SPOTLIGHT

TDRN UK provides a space for researchers, artists, academics, and practitioners to share knowledge, information, and research around Tap Dance.

Our steering team is made up of nine individuals that are performers, educators, artists, academics, writers, producers and often many of these at once.

We want to reflect a broad understanding of what research in Tap Dance is, and can be by engaging with the public, Academia, the Arts sector and cultural industries. We do this through holding our own events, presenting at conferences and festivals, publishing our own material and sharing information and resources through our website and social media.

Join our mailing list to receive information about events, opportunities and news about Tap Dance research.

For the next few sessions we are getting in to all things tap dance and sound!
