HOMECOMING 25 is a powerful celebration of the extraordinary contributions of the company’s artists to the American art form of tap dancing. Current and former artists who honed their skills within the company and have become prominent in the tap dance industry today will take the stage. Audiences will be delighted to see fan favorites and stop-over artists perform in Homecoming 25, including Maurice Chestnut, Karen Callaway Williams, Jeff Foote, Evan Ruggiero, Kyle Wilder, Nicholas DiNicolangelo, DeWitt Fleming, Jr., Parris Mann and Hillary Marie -Michael and Katrina Richter to name a few. The company will also pay tribute to their 22-year-old musical director, the Broadway conductor, the late J. Leonard Oxley. A live band under the direction of Nicki Denner, the rich vocals of jazz singer Carrie Jackson, special guests from the Broadway stage and the remembrance of NJTAP artist Jennifer Lynn (Intravartolo) Asprocolas will complete this delightful energetic performance for a audience of all ages. It’s a 25 year celebration not to be missed!
