Listen to my feet and I will tell you the story of my life.

— John Bubbles, the father of American Rhythm Tap
Tap dancers rest on the pier in Charleston, SC in flannel shirts, jeans, and saddle-style tap shoes.

Holy City Hotfoot, Charleston’s tap community, can fill your soul with percussion! Featuring a love for the history and future of tap, we feature Broadway, swing, rhythm, and contemporary styles of tap. Events are cast from our community performers to suit your event needs, or show up at one of many pop-up performances and join us #OnTheBoard!!

NO AUDITIONS, NO FEES, open to all tap enthusiasts!!

Master classes are open to all community members, and held in fall and spring. Click on “Upcoming Events” for more information, to register, and to pay class fees. Our Master Class series aims to support ALL tap dancers, and is not affiliated with any one studio. Please join us!
