North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble

Rhythm…funk…innovation…excitement: that’s the North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble (NCYTE). One of the best youth tap ensembles in the world, NCYTE features approximately 40 dancers, ages 8 to 18, who hail from throughout NC. Don’t let the word “youth” fool you. These dancers tear up the floor with poise, passion and professionalism. NCYTE honors the traditions of this unique American form while infusing it with youthful energy, contemporary music, and innovative dances from some of the world’s most talented choreographers. ​ Founded by JUBA award winning artistic director Gene Medler in 1983, NCYTE entertains audiences with contemporary choreography along with traditional rhythm tap.
