OCTOBER 29, 2017 | 7 P.M. | The Whiting | Flint, Michigan
Tapology Concert is a presentation of hot jazz and exciting dancers raising funds for Flint's Children of Challenge. For 14 years this concert and festival production has been working to bring formal arts and dance training to schools and students who had none.
But don't think that lofty purpose equals boring. This concert is known for electric performances and the absolute hottest Jazz band to be found south of New York City! Look who we've got on tap...
A Hot Band can only be topped by BIG Dance Masters!
Jason Samuels Smith leads the Concert line-up. Along with tap, percussive dance favorites Mable Lee, Dianne Walker, Maurice Chestnut, Clara Reyes; Alexandria, Bruce, Frances and Cherrise Bradley; this combination of amazing dancers will leave you in awe!

But that's not all! Tapology's Festival weekend, of which the amazing concert is a part, exposes youth to dance and the arts in after-school programs all year long. Tapology's Youth Ensemble is the product of these programs, and of training by our dance masters. The Ensemble, a group of young people who will knock you off your feet, will appear in selected numbers choreographed for them by our phenomenal guest artists.
Tapology is an annual tradition of the Tapology Dance Festival for Youth, which offers tap workshops taught by world renowned concert artists and is hosted by Flint Institute of Music and Flint's Cultural Center. A local production, Tapology showcases local talent on stage with the greatest percussive dancers of our time.
The Concert, Tapology's largest fundraising effort, assigns a portion of every ticket sold to arts and dance instruction for youth throughout the State of Michigan year round; nurturing creative talents in young people and providing opportunities for them to develop, build resume's and find excellence within themselves..
