Former Rockette Uses Ferndale Dance Studio to Share Talents with Metro Detroit Community

Tap Dance Detroit founder and former Radio City Rockette Denise Caston-Clark was featured on CBS Detroit News in September 2023. 

Combining her experiences as a Rockette and as a teacher at the prestigious New York dance studios Broadway Dance Center and Steps on Broadway, Caston-Clark has created a hidden gem in Tap Dance Detroit “where anybody, any level from absolute beginner to working professional, can come in and take a class and learn how to dance.”

The atmosphere at Tap Dance Detroit is both inclusive and welcoming. “If you can walk, you can tap dance, so literally anybody is welcome to walk in here,” says Caston-Clark.

Keep your taps on, whether you’re backstage at the theater or crossing a tile floor on location at a competition venue! 

Our patent-pending OverTaps slide easily over tap shoes to allow for quiet practice, crossing any style of flooring without causing damage, and protecting your taps when outside.
