Star Dixon @ Taptastic German Tap Dance Festival


What´s a better way to begin 2020 than a Tap festival? Let´s welcome the New Year together!

For four days, there will be 6 Teachers from the USA, Spain, Switzerland and England going to get you rocking. We will have classes for everybody – from Beginners to Advanced+! During the days you can learn from the artist – at night you can admire them on stage.

Wilhelmshaven is a beautiful city in northern Germany, located at the Jade Bight, a bay of the North Sea. The city counts many beautiful sights such as the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Bridge, lots of museums, the South Beach and the harbor. You can go shopping in Wilhelmshaven´s beautiful downtown area or enjoy the nightlife in the city´s many bars and clubs. There are many reasons to come to Wilhelmshaven!

Dunses Dance School and the Tapdance Factory are well known for their fantastic Tapdance Events in Wilhelmshaven. Now it´s time to host the second international Tapdance festival in Wilhelmshaven. Let´s make music together and learn from each other to make the Tap community bigger and stronger!

You can already look forward to Ruben Sanchez (Barcelona), Avalon Rathgeb (London),  Charles Renato (New York), Aaron Tolson (New Hampshire), Daniel Borak (Swiss) and Starinah Dixon (Chicago)!
