For the first time in more than 14 months, The Music Center in downtown Los Angeles is having an in-person and live performance event all this week in honor of Tap Dance Day – which is on May 25.

Heel and toe taps will be rhythmically taking over the Jerry Moss Plaza. It’s been turned into the Super Villlanz Tap Dance Park – which includes a tap dance playground with five different kinds of boards.

“It was really fun,” said Tania Arzate, who attended a tap dance session at the plaza with her daughter. “I thought again like this would be perfect for a great mother-daughter date just to be out and about.”

The tap dance park is free, but reservations are required. There’s also a guide who will help people pick up new steps from beginner to advanced.

“You need to be very safe with your mask and socially distant because safety is our priority at The Music Center,” said Rachel Moore, president and ceo of The Music Center.
