SynKopate and SynKopate II are pre professional training companies within the School at Peridance that is aimed towards the Intermediate to Advanced Tap dancer, typically ages 12 to 18 years old. In addition to weekly rehearsals under the direction of renowned Tap teacher Karin Rendelman, dancers will have multiple opportunities to participate in master classes with renowned choreographers and also to perform in a variety of venues in and around the NYC area! SynKopate and SynKopate II are absolutely for those who have a passion for and are inspired by all things TAP!
SynKopate and SynKopate II have two major goals:
1. To offer performing opportunities for students who are dedicated to Tap.
2. To provide a focused environment in which students learn to work together as a team.
SynKopate, formerly known as TapCo, was founded in 2015 under the direction of Karin Rendelman. Now, there are two companies, known as SynKopate and SynKopate II. SynKopate is for students ages 12-17 years, and SynKopate II is for students ages 10-13 years. Both companies are required to take a Tap technique class in the School at Peridance, as well as rehearsing choreography together during weekly rehearsals. Both companies have multiple performance opportunities in the Salvatore Capezio Theater at Peridance Capezio Center, as well as other venues throughout NYC. Being part of SynKopate and SynKopate II is a year-long commitment, and all company members must take the required technique class and attend weekly rehearsals.
SynKopate and SynKopate II company members are accepted by audition only. They must take a Tap technique class in the School at Peridance, which are specified by Rendelman and School Coordinators. It is important to continue training in technique so that company members can better execute their choreography and continue to build upon choreography.
In addition to weekly technique classes and rehearsals, company members learn choreography from Karin Rendelman, who is an established Tap teacher and is the primary teacher of the PeriChild and PeriTeen Tap programs in the School at Peridance. Company members have the opportunity to perform in various shows and performances throughout NYC.
