Stockholm Tap Festival 2012

The 3rd edition of Stockholm Tap Festival will take place April 5th-10th 2012, be sure to save the date! STF 2011 was an incredible fest and we are preparing an even bigger and better event that you don't want to miss, so mark your calendars for Easter weekend 2012.

Again, we offer you classes by some of the best dancers in the world for students at any level, and we can promise you a great event filled with jams, performances, crazy parties and so much more. Come and meet dancers from all around the world, get loads of inspiration and have an awsome time!

New for this year is "STF Tap Kids", a shorter youth program for the next generation of tap dancers, and we also have extended the festival with an extra day of master classes.

Pretty cool t-shirt huh...? =) Got the first batch now so if you want one contact me at jonas@houseofhoofing.com They will also be available for purchase at Stockholm Tap Festival, so better yet, go there and buy one! ;-)

"Play the music not the instrument"

Listening to "So what" and reading Miles Davis autobiography. Just got it in the mail yesterday and it's really good! Of course specially fun reading about the tap dancers, like Baby Laurence and Groundhog, described in Miles own words. And yeah, Miles vocabulary is another thing.... Will end this comment in his style. Miles is a motherfucker!
