Creator/Producer The Woodshed Experience

The journey begins...

I am so excited that you have decided to join me on this journey.  I wanted to create an experience like no other, where dancers from all around the world could come together, sharpen their skills, and develop their own voice as a tap dancer.  Our world deserves an orchestra of tap dancers so diverse with command of their abilities, strengths and vulnerabilities.  So tap family...Let's Shed!

The woodshed has become a metaphor for more than just practicing and honing technique and understanding the complexities of the music.  It offers the opportunity to find one's voice, develop new ideas, and become confident with one's instrument.  I assembled these four amazing world class tap artists to guide our tap dancers and lead them in this process.  Each offered their own unique views and perspectives on tap dance and the tap world in general.
