Hello, Kickstarter! Our names are Sergey Ostapenko and Alexander Ostanin. We live in Ukraine. We are the two-time world champions in tap-dance.

 We have our own tap-studios, where we try to teach kids, what the music of the feet is. We try to explain them, how a tap dancer can express himself with a help of rhythm, music, dance and improvisation. We try to develop their aesthetic taste with a help of means of tap dance, that is a unique art-form, in which dance, music and philosophy are synthesized.

 We traveled around the world and we met and made friends with our heroes: Jason Samuels Smith, Michelle Dorrance, Chloe Arnold and other great masters of tap-dance. They liked our style and advised us to make a tap show together with our students. 

 It’s a good idea, and we feel that someday we can do it. However, right now we have so many problems to solve. And for all these problems we need money. The dance rooms, where we teach, are the only place where we can tap. We really need to dance on a wooden floor, but we destroy it with our shoes. Soon we are going to change it in a new one, but it’s really expensive for us.

 We could learn tap dance in the next dance room, but the floor there is covered with linoleum. So we need to make a wooden floor here as well, but it is even more expensive, than to change floor in the first hall.

 Besides we have a problem with a roof. It’s broken. It’s ok when it is hot and dry, but when it rains, there’s a great flood.

 Nonetheless, more and more children want to learn tap dance in our studios. That means we need to have big and powerful speakers in the classrooms. The small ones, that we have right now, cannot cope with the sound of our tap shoes. So all that we are asking for, is money for our tap dance studios. We need to make a wooden floor, a roof and to buy new big speakers. Nowadays it’s really hard to find money in Ukraine, even if you are a world champion. Please, help us to develop our tap studios and to teach children, who are the future of the world.

Risks and challenges

We try to teach our students philosophy and art of tap dance.
This company on "Kiсkstarter" will help us to do it as good as we can.
The only problem, that can prevent the realization of the project, is the financing.
Everyone, who supported this project, will definitely get our gratitude and reward.
