Jazz Tap Artist Katherine Kramer will be in residence next week at the Dance Department. Kramer’s residency will focus on exploring democracy in tap dance/jazz music. As part of the residency, she will teach two community workshops and host a Friday Forum. These events are designed to explore the shared principles between Jazz Arts and democracy – listening, open communication, respect, collaboration, and improvisation.

Among her many accomplishments as a performer, choreographer, and educator, on July 10, 2018, Kramer received one of the dance world’s highest honors: The Hoofer Award, given annually since 2001 (when the legendary Gregory Hines won it) by the American Tap Dance Foundation.

All events are free and open to the public. All ages and levels are welcome. No tap shoes required.
