Tappin' In has been developed in partnership with Midland Heart, and is supported by The Belgrade Theatre, Arts Council England, Coventry 2021, Roch Valley Dancewear and Asda
The project fundamentally looks to tackle isolation and loneliness by bringing people together to take part in a large-scale celebratory project.
Tappin' In is currently in pilot stages during which we are working with Midland Heart housing and 10 participants who are tenants. For 10 weeks the group will meet and learn how to tap dance as well as sharing stories and generally having a nice time. All of which will feature at a sharing for invited audiences at The Belgradge Theatre.
If the pilot is successful we will create the same experience with 10 different groups in the year 2021 and culminate in a spangly extravaganza across the streets of Coventry City Centre.
During the pilot, BBC Midlands Today popped into our sessions, check out the video on the left.
