About the event

Live & Virtual Auditions at the Mayfair Arts Center

Auditions will take place in person February 25th. Please arrive to check-in between 12:30-1pm. Auditions will be held from 1-3pm. The Tap Scholar Award program usually conducts an audition in Chicago every winter where two-thirds of awards are made. Additional scholarships are awarded through partners in Japan, Brazil, Canada, the European Union and the United States. The Award decisions are based on a combination of criteria including skill, talent and financial need with the intention of creating a diverse mix of young dancers dedicated to furthering their tap and percussive dance education every summer at Chicago's International Festival of American tap – RHYTHM WORLD.

Rhythm World is the oldest, largest and most comprehensive festival of American tap in the world, annually attracting hundreds of students from around the globe to study with an internationally acclaimed faculty of master teachers and performers. Over the last 34 years, many multi-year, Tap Scholar Award winners, including Jumaane Taylor, Ian Berg, Starinah Dixon, Nico Rubio, Sean Kaminski, and Donnetta Jackson, have gone on to successful careers in teaching, choreographing and performing.
