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 and has been featured at TEDx. The Tap Factor's original productions, Tap in the Night, Feet Speak, Tap into a Dream, and Tap on Top have recently debuted on Hapag Lloyd’s MS Europa and MS Europa 2, and continue to tour internationally throughout the year. Christopher's newest project, Dark Stepp challenges his more typical approach to tap dance with new sounds and interactive projected imagery.
