Evening Events

A big part of STF is the socializing and hanging out with other dancers, jamming & sharing. We have faculty tap talk, movie showings & history lectures, to listen and learn from the older more experienced dancers and get a better knowledge of our art form.
There's also a lot of other fun stuff like the All Style Battle, performances, Cutting Contest and the Faculty Showcase Gala, and everything is open for anyone who wants to enjoy dance and live music so invite all friends and family!!
