About ATD

 

The association was founded by Penny Smith in 1994 under the name of Amateur Tap Dancers, and soon grew to be country-wide. As news of the association spread, many teachers and performers joined and passed on the word. So it was decided to drop the 'Amateur' and in 2005 it was re-launched as Associated Tap Dancers (ATD). A non-profit making organisation, it makes arrangements for members to meet and join in tap dancing events.

 

Activities include newsletters, one-day workshops (‘Dancers Days Out’) around the country and the annual TapUK Festival.
 

The association is now run by a management committee as follows:

Penny Smith: TapUK Festival, Newsletters, Website, Finances and overall administration.

Dolores Clark: Membership database and Secretary.

Regional Representatives: DDOs, Media/Social Networks, Merchandise and general enquiries.
South West - Sam Greenough;  South East - Angela Walker
