STL Rhythm Fest 2022

I want to come, but I can't be there for all of the classes.  What are my options?

We have 3 festival options for you!

1.  All Access (Access to all workshops on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24)

$310 per student


2.  One Day Access (Access to all workshops on either Saturday, July 23 OR Sunday, July 24)

$160 per student


3.  Pay Per Class (You choose the classes you plan to attend)

$35 per class

How do I know whether to register for the intermediate level or the advanced level?

The level and pace of each class will be determined by of our guest instructors.  Every teaching artist defines these levels differently.  However, we have made some recommendations below to help guide you when making your choice.

Intermediate:  In general, we recommend that a student registering for the intermediate level has had at least 5 years of consistent, weekly tap dance training.

Advanced:  In general, we recommend that a student registering for the advanced level has had at least 8 or more years of consistent, weekly tap dance training.

* If after your first class of the day, you feel overwhelmed or that you could be challenged more, come speak with our staff.  As long there is space availability, we may allow you to switch your level.  Once you switch levels, you must stay in that level for the remainder of the classes for which you are registered.

Is there an age requirement for festival classes?

There is no age minimum or maximum for STL Rhythm Fest classes.  However, we ask that you refer to the previous question and consider our level recommendations based on the amount of previous training you have had.  

Can anyone come to the Faculty Panel Discussion or the Open Jam Session?

YES!  Both of these events are free and open to the public.  You don't need to register.  Just come!


The panel discussion on Saturday, July 23 at 6:30pm, featuring our professional working tap masters, will include memories of festival honoree, Professor Robert L. Reed, and the days of The St. Louis Tap Festival.  We'll also discuss historical & contemporary issues important to careers in the arts.  


The open tap jam session on Sunday, July 24 at 6:30pm, will feature the artistry of our master instructors and is an open forum where everyone is encouraged to join in.  If you prefer not to join in that's okay!  We strongly encourage you to attend and enjoy as an audience member, especially if you've never been to a tap jam before!


I will be traveling from outside of the St. Louis area to attend the festival.  What hotels are nearby and are there any hotel discounts available? 

We will have this information available soon!  Check back, right here on our FAQ's page for updates, or email us at and let us know you're interested in this information.  As soon as we have it available, we'll email it directly to you.

I submitted my registration form, but I haven't received my official email confirmation.


Please allow 2 business days from the date of submission for us to respond.  We will use the email       you provided to send an official confirmation and invoice with information on how to submit your           festival payment.
