To celebrate tap dance and related cultural arts as vehicles of learning, human expression, and thriving communities.
We envision spaces in which the cultural values of growth, care, cooperation, excellence, and grace, are experienced, engendered, and expressed with joy through the physical practice of tap dance and related cultural arts. This is achieved through the activities of training for all levels, ages, and body types; sharing the arts and celebrating unique voices in performance; and producing events designed to gather communities together.
Since it’s founding in 1995, the organization has spearheaded connecting the local and international communities
through the annual Vancouver Tap Dance Festival, and has been the most prolific presenter of professional tapdance shows in the Lower Mainland.
TapCo has reached an audience of over 100,000 since it’s inception inspiring young audiences through
seasonal tours in the greater Vancouver area facilitated by ArtStarts.
In 2011 VanTap purchased its current location at 2775 East Hastings Street solidifying its presence and
investment in the local community.
