URBAN TAP is directed by Tamango (artistic director, tap, didjeridoo, drums, spoken word) who is also a dancer, musician, and painter whose revolutionary approach to tap transforms his dance into music with a sharpened sense of style and awe-inspiring fluidity.

Born in Cayenne, French Guyana, Tamango moved to Paris at age eight and began a formal education in art. He started tap dancing in his early twenties at the American Center in Paris and the Beaux Arts de Paris, which he left to join the "university of the streets" before moving to NYC.
