Chloé and Maud Productions and JPMorgan Chase & Co. present online tap intensive Tap into the Future!, hosted by Emmy Award-nominated choreographer Chloé Arnold and her sister, internationally renowned tap dancer Maud Arnold, from December 12-13.
In addition to daily tap classes, the two-day online intensive will feature Syncopated Ladies repertory classes, Syncopated Babies, Afro-Funk and special expert Zoom sessions including financial empowerment, cyber safety, the business of showbiz and a tap jam party.
“We’re excited to partner with JPMorgan Chase & Co. to empower youth with the love for dance and the financial tools for success,” said Chloé. “In today’s precarious world, it’s not enough to be the talent. We want to equip young people with financial literacy skills to build a brighter future on and off the dance floor – empowered by the love for dance and equipped with the tools for change.”
All ages and levels are welcome to participate in online master classes with Syncopated Ladies stars Chloé and Maud Arnold, Anissa Lee (NIKE, Ellen), Assata Madison, Pam Yasutake (Broadway’s Shuffle Along), Melinda Sullivan (Flying Over Sunset, La La Land, So You Think You Can Dance) and Gisele Silva, along with special guests Jared Grimes (Broadway’s A Soldier’s Play, After Midnight and NBC’s Manifest), Charles Renato (24 Seven Dance Convention) and Jabu Graybeal (Postmodern Jukebox and Apt. 33).
Classes are replayable for 30 days. Panels are only available live and are free to the public. The Chloé and Maud Foundation created a “buy one, give one” model, which allows them to provide scholarships to tap dancers of all ages and abilities around the globe who may not otherwise be able to participate.
