OPEN MIC

A Virtual Tap Dance Extravaganza


Date: Sunday, December 20, 2020

Time: 4:00 pm

Place: KOW's Virtual Concert Hall

 

Calling all Knock On Wood students and members of the tap community!

 

We invite you to join us in our annual OPEN MIC on Sunday, December 20, at 4pm!

 

We usually have this event live, but we won't be stopped because of the pandemic, AND we will do it safely! We have a special treat in store for you this year, and we're gonna party on Zoom :)

 

There are THREE WAYS that let you showcase your own love of tap dance and win an awesome prize! You can participate in one, two, or all three options!

 

Option 1: The Entertainer   Pre-record a video of yourself tap dancing. Use music or not, do improv or choreography, join with others and do a little editing, or blow our minds dancing solo! It's an open floor, with a 1-minute maximum time limit. (If you have a set piece you'd like to share that is longer than 1 minute, note this on the sign-up sheet and we will try our hardest to show the entirety of your piece, given time.)

 

Option 2: The Lover   Pre-record a video of yourself describing why you love tap dance. Or your favorite step. Or your first teacher that you loved. In general, why tap dance? What does it do for you in your life? Why do you love Knock On Wood Tap Studio?! This option has a submission maximum of 30 seconds. Please only one "Lover" submission per student.

 

Option 3: The Enthusiast  Come watch our show (or participate too!) and try your hand at some tap and percussion trivia! We'll pose a few questions throughout the event, and the winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to spend at Knock On Wood for anything you wish. This is enough to cover a 5-class card!! Other prizes TBA.
