Our 3rd Annual STL Rhythm Fest brought 5 internationally acclaimed professional artists from across the U.S. to St. Louis, providing access to world class workshops & activities.  STL Rhythm Fest 2023 featured 20 workshops, a free kick-off jam session, and a free faculty panel discussion.

Activities focused on sharing the history & artistry of tap dance. 


Our kick-off tap jam featured the artistry of our master instructors and is an open forum where everyone is encouraged to join or simply enjoy as an audience member.


Our free faculty panel discussion featured a discussion on historical & contemporary issues important to careers in the arts.  Artists shared insight on the impact of the historic St. Louis Tap Festival on their lives and careers. 


For many years, the R. L. Reed Tap Heritage Institute, under the direction of Professor Robert L. Reed, produced the St. Louis Tap Festival (STLF). During STLF’s tenure, thousands of artists and enthusiasts from all over the world have attended the festival’s activities and have recognized the St. Louis area as a hub for the art of tap dance.  STL Rhythm Collaborative honors the commitment and contributions of the late Professor Robert L. Reed at our STL Rhythm Fest. In future years, it is our vision to expand the scope of educational opportunities available through STL Rhythm Fest, using the renowned St. Louis Tap Festival as a model. Your support is greatly appreciated.
