The Skylark Tappers dance company promotes the art of tap dance by performing a repertoire of classic and contemporary tap pieces. The company has appeared at numerous events and functions in Portland, Oregon and surrounding areas.
The Skylark Tappers regularly produce and perform their own concerts. These performances feature a wide variety of tap styles and musical selections, along with well-respected guest artists.
The Skylark Tappers came into being in 1983 when tap teacher Claire Hallsted gathered her students for a commercial shoot promoting the restoration of the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland, Oregon. Now under the artistic direction of Judy Tibbles, the company continues to devote much time and energy to sharing the joy and artistry of tap dance.
