Dueling Performances [Tap Dancers]

Join us on the South Plaza’s main stage for a dueling performance. Artists at the top of their trade will perform their best work to determine who is the ultimate champion of their art. The judge? YOU. Each week experience a different performance – pianists, electric violinists, guitarists, beat boxers, DJs, dancers, artists and more – and decide who the dueling performance champion is.

Celebrate Tap City in Union Square as four incredible tap dancers battle it out. We welcome to the stage Caleb Teicher & Company (CT&Co) vs. Sarah Reich's Tap Music Project. CT&Co presents new work the blends traditional American dance forms in a modern context, while the Tap Music Project focuses on tap as a percussive instrument. Prepare to be tapping your feet to this fantastic match up. Watch the performance on Union Square’s South Plaza (near 14th Street).
