quote David Wynen is an exemplary, inspiring and creative dance teacher. Through a FedUni learning and teaching project grant, David and his collaborator Christopher Prank have produced Tap Rhythm to share their expertise with the global performing arts community. This is truly a wonderful initiative that represents a quantum leap forward.

quote My dance colleague Judy Conte and I have also been able to access your Tap Rhythm site and find it immensely useful and helpful from the beginner through advanced onto professional levels. We will surely refer to this and investigate Tap Rhythm for the future inclusion of the Universities performance library.

quote David Wynen brings not only deep and broad dance smarts and endless curiosity to every class, festival, or performance he contributes to; he also brings that most welcome thing of all a combination of real warmth and real wit that reminds everyone it’s necessary to talk and laugh and connect as well as obsessively work.

Billy Siegenfeld, Artistic Director, Jump Rhythm Jazz Project

quote David Wynen’s Tap Rhythm Project is a tremendous resource for both the student and teacher of tap dance.  His approach is based on years of teaching and performing and is both practical and innovative.  My students made great progress under David’s thoughtful guidance and expertise.  The original music and arrangements are perfect for both teaching and performing.

Thelma Goldberg, Dance Inn, Boston

quote David is a musical, skilled dancer and, more importantly, a nice, kind human being.


quote David Wynen’s vast knowledge of tap dancing and all its sub genres, gave me the confidence to perform incredibly challenging tap solos in shows, such as the Drowsy Chaperone, alongside Geoffrey Rush. His teaching style is fuelled with love, passion and a complete and utter dedication to not only the craft of tap dancing but to all those who are fortunate enough to share his class with him.

Josh PitermanTen Tenors, West Side Story, An Officer and a Gentleman

quote David’s unique teaching style always establishes a clear distinction between proper and improper technique. He teaches in a way that is fun, challenging and interesting, and always safe for your body. He is largely responsible for my solid foundations in tap, and dance in general.

Joe Kosky- Jersey Boys

quote I have had the pleasure of being taught by David Wynen over many years. He is not only a highly skilled tap teacher, but also a wonderful performer and director. His work as my teacher as a child and then in later years, as an adult was demonstration to me that he has the rare skill set to communicate dance to both the beginner and professionally trained dancer at any age. In my opinion Tap Rhythm can only be an extension of those great abilities, and therefore something no one should miss.
