What Campers Say About TAP Camp
Thank you so much for this opportunity of a lifetime! This has truly been the most riveting, rejuvenating, and freeing experience of my entire life. I got into NYU and I wouldn’t even have had the confidence and skillset to even audition for NYU if it wasn’t for TAP Camp.
-Moses Aina (2016 & 2019, Acting Major)

-Jordan Williams (2019, Musical Theatre)
I am so much more confident in myself. All the campers worked together and the staff was always there for us. I loved the staff! I’m not just saying that. They were INCREDIBLE! Everyone of them helped me grow in so many different ways. I cannot express how grateful I am for this AMAZING experience!

What Parents Say About TAP Camp
The TAP camp staff is made up of professionals with open hearts and open minds — determined to showcase your child’s talent, whatever it may be.
The end of camp production was incredible and our son talked about it for weeks.
Many, many thanks to you and to all of your wonderful staff and counselors, for putting together such a great week for our kids. They had a ball and we absolutely LOVED the showcase.
Kathryn has already been in “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” and “Fiddler on the Roof” – the big musicals at her school. She is doing so well thanks to her excellent TAP training!
This camp was a lifesaver. There is no way my daughter or I could have known how to prepare for the ins and outs of auditioning for BFA programs. You prepared her more in 4 weeks than any other program she has attended. Thank you for all you do for these students.
Tap camp was a life changing experience for my daughter, by developing her self confidence, enthusiasm and a wonderful camaraderie with other students. The instructors are definitely of the highest caliber you will find anywhere, and St. Stephen’s school is one of the most beautiful vistas in Austin.
