Tap Ensemble is Tufts’ only performance group devoted exclusively to tap dancing. Each year, the Tap Ensemble performs in shows hosted by tap groups from other schools in the area including BU, Brandeis, and Harvard. These groups have also come to Tufts to perform in shows. Tap Ensemble recently performed at BU as part of BU on Tap’s Mass Rhythms show. Tap Ensemble Director Amanda Bell said:
Even though we all go to school in the Boston area, all the tap groups have different styles. BU’s group, BU on Tap, is great, and Brandeis’ group is always fun to watch. We always learn something from watching other groups and get great ideas to try in the future.
