Bio Ilmo Simonsen

I have been tap dancing since 1999. I grew up in an artist-circus family and had the opportunity to study and perform since I was a small child. I attended NYC-Tap Festival for the first time in 2002 at the age of five. I have since been tap dancing through my childhood and teenage years and I have attended all the STF’s since 2010. I am also an alum of the 2017 Tap Program at The School at Jacob’s Pillow, one of the most prestigious professional dance training centers in the U.S. At the moment I live in Helsinki and work as a freelancer in professional dance productions.
