TapCo is the Vancouver Tap Dance Society’s youth performance group. This energetic group of 17 young dancers from 12-16 years old train under the direction of Mary-Lou Brien, and put on top notch performances to a variety of audiences.
Since the inception of TapCo in 2002, they have toured extensively with ArtStarts in over 300 BC schools, entertaining and educating thousands of kids about the history and art form of tap dance. They have a 45 minute school show followed by a question and answer period with the students. Their infectious enthusiasm inspires the kids as evidenced in the myriad of excited questions they answer following the show.
Tapco also performs at many Children’s Festivals, community events, fundraisers and last year toured a full length show. They are wonderful role models of positive energy, dedication and hard work and expose audiences to the very alive, rhythmic and dynamic art of tap dancing!
