Top young tap dancers from all over the country are in Burlington. This is the training ground for Tap Kids.
Friday, the group was rehearsing for its upcoming shows. The kids train through the summer intensive program, working with tap dance masters.
"They should come because they will be inspired. Not just inspired to dance, but inspired to pursue their passion. Inspired to do what they do with more pep, vim and verve, with more energy and more focus. It's very inspiring and really shows the power of youth," said Lisa Hopkins, the director and creator of Tap Kids.
The Tap Kids Showcase Spec-tap-ular takes place Saturday at Main Street Landing in Burlington. There are shows at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. For tickets: tapkids.ticketleap.com
