Creating a new home for former American Tap Dance Foundation 

Education Programs 

Hi everyone, allow me to introduce myself, Susan Hebach,

the new Director of Tap Dance Central Inc.

Upon the news of the planned closing of our much loved American Tap Dance Center, I have mobilized our dedicated teachers, tap artists and student community to continue our youth and adult programs and unique tap dance space under a new umbrella, which has now become a new 501c3 with an updated name 

" Tap Dance Central Inc." 

We will soon sign a new lease in the current location

on 154 Christopher St. Suite 2B, and classes will resume in September 2024!


If you have come to love the vibrant student community,

the wonderful teachers and classes offered at ATDF, please consider

being a part of Tap Dance Central Inc.

A fundraising campaign is coming soon to help raise money to prepare 

to have a successful start for our new season. 

STAY TUNED for updates! 

And, if you want to help and be involved,
