Legacy Tap Dance Concert

Presented by dance Immersion in association with Canadian Stage

By Travis Knights, Lisa La Touche & Guests

Where dance meets music. Where tradition meets innovation. dance Immersion’s Legacy Tap Dance Concert celebrates Black culture born from the Harlem Renaissance, with a genre-bending intergenerational cast led by Travis Knights, Lisa La Touche, and Donny Milwalkee.

The Legacy Series is a movement. It examines the past, present and future of African Diasporic dance forms through reclamation, education, and celebration. This Concert brings together some of Canada’s most renowned tap dance artists and multi-genre musicians, with brief appearances from some special next generation tap dancers. Celebrate and honour the culture with us at the Legacy Tap Dance Concert.
