In honor of the International Tap dance day, we continue the tradition – "Riga TAP JAM". It is a tap dance jam with live music that is planned as a biannual event with the goal to bring closer tap dancers from all Baltic States as well as other countries. All level tap dancers and jazz musicians are welcome to join! Others are welcome to join the audience and experience the magic as viewers. Jazz musician company - Janis Pastars (guitar), Yuriy Natsvlishvili (bass), Pauls Kierpe (drums) - will take care of the musical background – interacting with tap dance improvisations they will perform the most famous jazz standards. The evening will be hosted by the amazing Soul Tap dancer Rita Biezeka.

During the day, there will be tap dance masterclasses taught by tap dance masters from Baltic states. Suitable for all levels.

Don't wait long to apply – the number of participants in the masterclasses is limited!
