  • “While it’s a neat thing that Tap Tap showcases Haitian art, music and culture, the most significant thing about the place is its consistently excellent rendering of simple and classic food from the small island nation….” — South Beach Magazine
  • Winner of Best Mojito Miami 2012: “Sorry, Cuba, but with rum so clearly superior, the Haitian mixologists at Tap Tap have beaten you at your own game.” — Miami New Times

[/vc_tta_section ]
5 You won’t ignore your workout while on tour with us! We have lots planned and will be adding as much as we can to the agenda as we near the tour date. Some slight changes may occur.

Workouts will be offered on the beach & dance fitness classes will be offered at The Fillmore in Miami. It is such an honor to be able to dance in this historical venue where so many of the greats have performed and entertained. This venue is to die for, and is within walking distance of our group hotels. In Miami, this is a big deal because cab rides and access to your car can be a hassle and very expensive.

We have added a lighting package for this venue. High Five! Not only will we have a wall of sound, but the lighting crew will be coming in to work it for you!! This is a don’t miss trip especially for DT locations that are so close. Take this opportunity to dance with us on a tour. We will be taking a break next year, so we aren’t sure when you’ll get the chance to dance with us again!


*Note: times may change slightly depending on classes that could be added to our agenda. Make sure and check day of event. New Stretch class just added.

More on the Fillmore:

Originally called the Miami Beach Auditorium, the The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater is a theater which in the 1960s was renamed for Jackie Gleason. In 1964 Gleason moved his popular television series, The Jackie Gleason Show to the Miami Beach Auditorium.

The theater was renovated in 2007 [3] and was renamed The Fillmore as part of a management contract. The name comes from an expansion of the brand made famous by music promoter Bill Graham and the famous The Fillmore in San Francisco. It is now home to live concerts, productions and can be rented for special events. The theater is now operated and managed exclusively by Live Nation. On May 5, 2010, NBC Miami reported that the theater would be demolished as a result of remodeling for the convention center, which would replace the theater with a new hotel.

The demolition did not take place and The Fillmore Miami Beach is still in operation as of January 2015.
