Capitol Tap

Resident Company at Knock On Wood

Capitol Tap was founded in 2010 by Lisa Swenton-Eppard to provide tap dancers an opportunity to grow as dancers, musicians, performers, and historians. Working in the rhythm tap modality, Capitol Tap guides tappers between the ages of 9 and 25 with: 

  • A "fundamentals first" approach  
  • Closed rehearsals featuring internationally-respected guest artists 
  • Active participation in the art of improvisation  
  • Performance opportunities to grow as a performing artist  
  • Chaperoned road trips to relevant tap events  
  • An educated base of knowledge of tap's rich history  
  • A repertoire comprised of both new and historical works.  

 

Capitol Tap's directors are Lisa Swenton-Eppard and Baakari Wilder. For additional information about the group, their performance schedule and more, please visit Cap Tap's website and their Facebook page, and you can also follow them on Twitter at @capitoltap.
