TAP is now auditioning for its 2021 - 2022 season! We're thrilled to welcome new members to our wonderful TAP family to help us better our community one performance at a time!
We are looking for elementary, middle, and high school students with a passion for singing and dancing, who are able to commit weekend time to rehearsals and performances. At this time, we are seeking members for our three performance groups:
TAP-N-Training (grades 5 and 6): an introductory season for TAP's youngest members.
TAP Jr. (grades 6 - 9)
TAP Sr. (grades 9 - 12)
This year, auditions will take place outdoors. Students should prepare to sing up to 32 bars of one ballad AND one uptempo song. Musical theatre songs are preferable, but are not required. Please bring sheet music in the correct keys or be sure to bring song track(s) in an mp3 format. Students will also learn and perform a brief dance combination. Please dress appropriately for movement and dance - form fitting clothes and comfortable sneakers are preferable since auditions will be held outdoors. Please also wear a mask that you can remove only when you are singing.
As a member of TAP, regular rehearsals are Saturdays from 9:00am to 12:00pm. All groups rehearse at The Bender JCC in Rockville, MD. We generally adhere to the Montgomery County Public Schools calendar for winter break, spring break, and holidays.
TAP will be performing before selected audiences of the elderly, sick, disabled, and financially disadvantaged. While we will work to prepare the performers to meet the needs of each of their audiences, any teen or pre-teen auditioning should be open-minded and giving of him or her self by nature. To ensure a cohesive group, absolutely no divisive behavior will be tolerated. Performers must be able and willing to work together and be mutually supportive at all times, on and off the stage.
Our community service events and performance schedule includes about two performances per month for each group; some will be joint events. Participants are expected to be at rehearsals and events; any known conflicts are addressed directly with the TAP Artistic Team.

"You should audition for TAP because it's so much fun and a really good way to use your love for music and dance to benefit the community as a whole."
— Anna, TAP Jr. Class of '25
You should audition for TAP because it will help you grow as both a performer and a person. The environment is great and gives you confidence in your performance skills. You will also make so many new friends who eventually become a second family."
— Roya, TAP Sr. Class of '22
