Tommy Wasiuta, described as a "breath of dance freedom" (New York Times) is a tap dance performer, educator, and choreographer based in New York City. As a performer, Tommy has appeared with Dorrance Dance at 92NY’s 150th Anniversary Season, Michela Marino Lerman’s Love Movement (Joyce Theater), Luke Hickey (American Dance Festival, Little Island), Max Pollak (Composers Concordance), the Ulysses Owens Jr. Big Band (Jazz at Lincoln Center), and the inaugural Caribbean Music Festival in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

 

As an educator, Tommy is on faculty for tap dance at Steps on Broadway and Beyond the Stars Dance Convention. He has been an instructor with Sarah Reich's Tap Music Project, Joffrey Ballet Tap Intensive, Swingin’ into Summer Tap Festival, and has been a guest at dance schools across the United States. As a choreographer, he has created work for the Detroit Tap Repertory, Reflections Dance Company, and has choreographed and performed the entirety of Morton Gould’s Tap Dance Concerto. A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Tommy is a founding member of the St. Louis Rhythm Collaborative (STLRC) and continues to support the tap dance community in St. Louis. He is an alumnus of the Tap Program at the School at Jacob’s Pillow and the University of Missouri - St. Louis. Tommy received his early training from Anthony Russo and Tracy Davenport at Performing Arts Centre and by attending the St. Louis Tap Festival.
