Tap Uganda is a new international arts education organization. Our mission is to provide children from low-income populations with resources and opportunities, using dance education as a vehicle.
Tap Uganda is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
What we do
The skills that children gain from dance and movement are incredibly useful for their education and social development. Combined with academic success, Tap Uganda aims to provide skills that will lead to opportunities for employment. Your donation can have a large impact on our students!
How we do it
We work in collaboration with various children’s centers in Kampala and surrounding areas. Many of our students have extensive cultural dance and music training, and the percussive movement of tap dance is innate. We provide free tap classes and performance opportunities, as well as courses in pedagogy and teacher trainings. The various services we provide build confidence and community, and provide resources, opportunities, and education for the children who benefit from the program. Additionally, the children gain a sense of purpose and accomplishment as their work is shared with communities around the globe.
