Point Tap Festival held at UW-Stevens Point

Learn to tap dance, or enjoy its rhythm, during the Point Tap Festival in Stevens Point Aug. 7-9.

Now in its fifth year, the event brings tap students and internationally known faculty to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point for three days of intensive classes. On Saturday, Aug. 9, a mini-fest package is offered for those with little or no tap experience, and tap shoes are not required.

Two performances are open to the public. A free jam session will be held on the Public Square in downtown Stevens Point from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8. A festival show will be performed by faculty at 8 p.m. Saturday in the Noel Fine Arts Center dance studio (room 136). Tickets at the door for the Saturday event are $15 for adults and $5 for children 14 and under.

Faculty members include Mark Goodman of Raleigh, N.C., Ryan Casey of Boston, Sarah Reich of Los Angeles and Jeannie Hill, an associate professor of theatre and dance at UW-Stevens Point and founder of the Point Tap Festival.
