The Skylark Tappers- Enthusiastic Tap Dance Troupe
For over 30 years, The Skylark Tappers have thrilled countless audiences with their inventive choreography, commanding stage presence, and most importantly, their contagious enthusiasm and love for tap dance. Founded in 1983, this ten-member tap troupe has continued to exceed their expectations to uphold their distinguished reputation in the Portland dance community. Under the direction of award winning choreographer and director Judy Tibbles, The Skylark Tappers features a variety of styles, from rhythm tap to Broadway dance, and from classical to comical.
The Skylark Tappers also perform for a diverse array of audiences, serving as guest artists for retirement home programs, at local fun-raisers and at various community festivals. Previously, The Skylarks danced at Portland’s International Day of Dance, Portland Metro Arts’ Dance Mosaic, Multnomah Arts Center Open House, and a benefit with Tony Starlight for LEAP Adventures. The troupe rehearses weekly and strives to be available and prepared for any opportunity to perform. The troupe recently produced their own tap concert, “Music & Sole II”, which featured both new and classic Skylark dances. The Skylarks are always eager and excited to share their love for tap dance.
