How TAP Works

Every summer, students from across the country flock to Austin, Texas for a one-of-a-kind performing arts experience. Through outstanding teaching, professional instruction and practical experience, Texas Arts Project (TAP Camp) has quickly become a proven leader in the world of performing arts education. TAP camp aims to enhance skills, encourage cooperative work, and nurture self-confidence.

This was Jacob’s first extended camp away from home, and a new expe­ri­ence for us all. Your staff was very help­ful at every stage. Jacob had a fan­tas­tic time. Really filled exactly the niche we needed, and Jacob got a great hands-​on learn­ing expe­ri­ence in film while learn­ing to appre­ci­ate musi­cal the­ater (some­thing he hadn’t much inter­est in before camp). –Parent to Filmmaking Major 2008 (Age 16)
