On April 22, international top tap dancing talent will be brought together for a one night extravaganza in Vancouver to celebrate the art of tap dancing. Tap Tonight will feature some of the best dancers in North America, both amateur and professional.
Each year, WCTDC honours legendary tap dance performers. This year's
Honourees are Canada’s own Blanche Lund and her late husband Alan Lund, two of the country’s foremost performing artists.  Blanche and Alan’s acclaimed careers brought them to the international stage and television audiences, and led to honours including a command performance before the Royal Family and appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show.   In 1982 Alan became a distinguished Officer of the Order of Canada for his contributions as a dancer, choreographer and director of musical theatre in Canada.
Tap Tonight - presents some incredible guest artists: “Walk of Famers” Jim Hibbard (Hello Dolly!, Gypsy) and Jeff Hyslop (Phantom of the Opera), both former West Coast Tap Dance Collective honourees, will take to the stage, joined by local tap masters recently featured in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Opening Ceremony -- Danny Nielsen, Keri Minty, Dayna Szndrowski, Marylou Brien, Lindsay Sterk and Shelley Stewart Hunt. Other featured performers include Everett Smith (So you Think You Can Dance), Joel Hanna (Riverdance), Troy McLaughlin (Disney’s the Lion King), Teryl Rothery (Stargate SG-1, The Guard) and Jessie Sawyers.  Jeff Hyslop and Shelley Stewart Hunt will entertain and delight as hosts of the evening’s festivities.  Attendees will have an opportunity to walk away with a pair of Special Edition Maple Leaf ProTap shoes from  So Danca signed by Everett Smith!
