The dancers of the First Company, primarily NJ artists, are extraordinary, dynamic adult tap dancers who love the art form, study its history and its pioneers. They have extensive training in the art form, continue their training and give recognition to the contributions of current, unknown and celebrated tap dancers. All of them teach tap classes throughout the state passing on the art form to the next generation.

 

The company has become known for artistic excellence in performance, development of tap artists, developing new tap projects and programs.  Partnerships with arts partners such as NJ Ballet and Alborada Spanish Dance Theater demonstrates the organizations wide appeal and commitment to broaden its audience.  The dancers are today’s ambassadors for the art form and leaders in the field nationally and internationally.
