For the past 20 years, Christopher Erk has traveled the world as a professional tap dance performer, teacher, choreographer and community program developer. Most recently he has toured with Tap Dogs, Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox, and was a featured Artist in Las Vegas' number one show Absinthe at Caesar' Palace. His production company the Tap Factor emphasizes the global implications of Tap Dance through all-inclusive workshops and performance opportunities. The Tap Factor's two original productions, Tap in the Night and Feet Speak, have recently debuted on Forbes' top two reigning luxury cruise ships in the world, Hapag Lloyd's MS Europa and MS Europa 2. Christopher's newest project, Dark Stepp challenges his more traditional approach to tap dance with new sounds and interactive projected imagery.
