MANHATTAN — Bring your tap shoes and a friend to the Kansas State University Tap Dance Ensemble' s first-ever improvisation night, 5-7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24, at Salsarita's in the K-State Student Union.

The improvisation night features live music and a tutorial on basic tap-dance steps, as well a finale performance by the ensemble. The event is free and open to the public.

"The K-State Tap Dance Ensemble is committed to sharing tap dance locally and regionally," said Julie Pentz, ensemble director and associate professor of dance at K-State. "Join us for a special evening of tap dance. All are welcome."

Composed of 17 K-State student tap dancers, the ensemble offers a variety of services, including live performances, lecture demonstrations, themed programs, brief presentations at employee or faculty retreats and even tap-a-grams. The ensemble' s services are free, but donations are accepted to support and fund the group.
