Rain Location: Methuselah Bar and Lounge
Join us in the Dance Zone at the north end of Pittsfield’s Third Thursday cultural street festival for this family-friendly pop-up performance. Tapped In brings together standout alums from The School at Jacob’s Pillow to downtown Pittsfield for one night only. Tap dancers Demi Remick, Jackson Clayton, and Christina Carminucci will be performing tap solos.
Demi Remick is a YoungArts Gold Award winner in Dance, one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch,” and Presidential Scholar in the Arts nominee who tours worldwide as a tap dance soloist with Postmodern Jukebox and Caleb Teicher & Company.
Christina Carminucci, born and raised in New Jersey, is a New York City-based tap dancer. She began her training with the American Tap Dance Foundation’s Tap City Youth Ensemble and has studied extensively under the mentorship of Derick K. Grant. Christina is a Cum Laude graduate from Pace University (2016) with a BBA in Arts and Entertainment Management and can be seen performing, choreographing, and teaching throughout NYC. This proud Jacob’s Pillow Tap Program alumna has appeared in works by many of today’s greats, including Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, Brenda Bufalino, and Jason Samuels Smith, to name a few. Additionally, she has danced with a number of notable companies including Michelle Dorrance’s Dorrance Dance and Sarah Reich’s Tap Music Project. Over the past few years, Christina has performed both locally in the NYC area, as well as internationally overseas on the #1 rated cruise ship in the world. As an emerging, young choreographer, Christina co-produced On That Note, and, most recently, produced her first original one-woman show When the Smoke Clears at the Triad Theater in NYC. Passionate about sharing her love and knowledge of the art form, she currently teaches at the American Tap Dance Foundation, where she is in her third season as an Artist in Residence and is on faculty at Steps on Broadway. Christina is focused on developing her own works that represent tap dance with the highest respect.
