STL Rhythm Fest is our annual tap dance festival which brings the best artists in the industry to St. Louis to share their expertise with students and enthusiasts of all ages. STL Rhythm Fest 2022 brought world renowned artists, Martin Tre Dumas III (Chicago tap dancer and musician, founder of MADD Rhythms), Sean Kaminski (educator and performer with Ayodele Casel's Chasing Magic at the Joyce Theater), Elizabeth Burke (performer and Assistant Director of Dorrance Dance), George Patterson III (performer in Savion Glover's Broadway cast of Bring In Da Noise, Bring In Da Funk), and Nico Rubio (tap dance choreographer, historian, and founder of Shuffle Liiife Productions). Our festival attendees traveled from across the country to experience these artists. STL Rhythm Fest 2022 included more than 20 master classes with additional free events that included a faculty panel, jam session, and history discussion.
STL Rhythm Fest 2023 promises to be bigger and better with offerings of more than 30 master classes, held over 3 days and even more free events for all ages.

STL Rhythm Collaborative is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit arts education organization. We depend on the individual support of people like you, who recognize the importance of the arts and want to contribute to the growth and accessibility of arts programs in St. Louis.
STL Rhythm Collaborative needs a home. A place we all go to connect, learn, collaborate, and inspire one another. A single location you can go to take a class, enjoy an evening of live music, jam with the band, rehearse, and celebrate the history of the artists who paved the way for us. A place where artists passing through St. Louis stop for fellowship and inspiration. A home that provides a safe, supportive atmosphere for artists of all ages to express themselves through rhythm.
We need your support to pave the way toward our new home, which will allow us to expand our programs and reach many more families.
