UConn Tap is a student-run organization at the University of Connecticut. The club was founded in the Fall semester of 2003, and has since become an official club sport at the University of Connecticut (January 2004). Starting in the Fall 2004 semester, the interest increased so much that we expanded into the UConn Tap Team of 18 members, now 21, requiring auditions. Tap Club became a separate entity shortly thereafter, and does not require auditions. More information on the club can be found here.
The UConn Tap Team began competing in January 2005. We are an organization of tap dancers who wish to expand upon our talents and learn new methods, steps, and more from each other and our choreographers. Through tap, we strive to create connections with others, both those who tap, as well as those who do not.
Today, we are a very close knit group who have become family through working together on the team. We meet twice a week and have formed an irreplaceable bond through our love of tap dancing. We love when people take an interest in the team so if you would like to join in the future, be sure to contact us or visit us on Facebook or Instagram!
Auditions are held at the beginning of every Fall semester.
