MONSTER FUN NIGHTS
Saturday Oct 24
7 pm - 8:30 pm
Monster Fun Nights is pleased to present Untapped. Untapped, based in Little Rock, is Arkansas' first and only professional tap dance company. Matt Boyce founded the nonprofit organization in 2013 with the mission of cultivating awareness and appreciation for the art of tap dance in the state of Arkansas. Through performances and educational workshops,
Untapped showcases our nation's rich and diverse tap dance culture and history. Boyce, of New Jersey, was formerly involved with two distinct tap dance companies: an educational nonprofit group, and a strictly performance-based group. He was inspired by these two separate experiences to create an organization that combines the aspects of both groups. Matt studied at Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey with a focus of Music Education.
Untapped has held over 75 workshops across the state since 2014. We have worked with students young and old from all backgrounds and demographics. Untapped also performs in their own staged productions and at other local events, fundraisers, and concerts to further our mission of promoting the art of tap dance in Arkansas.
The mission of Untapped is to educate, engage, and entertain the state of Arkansas through the incredible art form of tap dance.
Admission is free. Bring a sense of fun!
