Join the Family • Spread the Word • Promote the Legacy • Advance the Art

This program is extended to unique individuals who share Tap Legacy’s mission for the preservation, promotion, and advancement of the art of tap dance.
Each Ambassador will receive special access to Tap Legacy programs and Ambassador Only programming. Ideal individuals are tap dance enthusiasts in the entertainment, dance, and academic fields; however we encourage others outside those fields to apply if you feel you can meet our objectives.
Tap Legacy Ambassadors are charged with a three-part mission:
1. Promoting the depth and scope of the art of tap dance by sharing and promoting Tap Legacy information and events.
2. Sharing the vision of the Tap Legacy Foundation in particular the building of the Tap Legacy Center.
3. Inspiring those around them by sharing the joy that they have found in tap dance.
