Tap Master Class Series

This fall we will be welcoming THREE tap greats! You’ve missed your chance to dance with Sarah Reich and Joseph C. Wiggan, but there is still time to learn from Melinda Sullivan. Classes are open to Intermediate and Advanced tap students.


Uncharted Returns!

Uncharted will bridge the gap between reality and a world that only timeless literature can create. Join us for a beautiful evening of emotional storytelling and stunning artistry. The Hawkins Contemporary Jazz Company will challenge you to dive deeper, celebrate life and love harder.

First you will be immersed in the world of someone dealing with the realities of cancer and the uncharted journey they have to take in the pursuit of survival. Then you will be transported into the world of Shakespeare as we explore our own rendition of Romeo and Juliet and the journey of uncharted love!

Come with us as we explore these uncharted journeys of loss - and love. Tickets on sale now!
