Porteous receives tap scholarship


Kali Porteous of Farragut received the Tap City Scholarship to study in New York City with tap personalities including Brenda Bufalino and Jimmy Slyde, who were recently featured on the PBS “History of Tap” series. Porteous, a student at Dance Center West, Inc., was the only student from Tennessee who received the scholarship.

While studying at Tap City, Porteous received an invitation from legendaries Gil Stroming and Mike Minery to spend an additional week in New York City at their “Slide” camp. Students of the camp studied new techniques in tap dance and were featured in an off-Broadway production at the end of July.


Porteous is now preparing with teacher Tracy Sellars Watson for tap competition in the spring and has been invited to attend Tap City and a Minery camp called “Break the Floor.”
