Tap Mondays In July: Great Feats of Feet


Monday, July 31, 2017, 6 p.m.

July is Tap Dance month here at The Library! The Jerome Robbins Dance Division is the recipient of the American Tap Dance Foundation’s 2017 Tap Preservation Award, which will be presented to us during Tap City 2017, the Annual New York City Tap Festival. To celebrate this honor, we are screening just a few of the many tap treasures from the Library’s collections.

The screenings will be held over four consecutive Mondays in July, starting on July 10 in the Third Floor Screening Room at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at 6pm. Doors open at 5:30pm Seating is first come first served.
