Untapped, based in Little Rock, is Arkansas' first and only nonprofit tap dance company. Matt Boyce founded the organization in 2013 with the mission of cultivating awareness and appreciation for the art of tap dance in the state of Arkansas. Through performances and educational workshops, Untapped showcases our nation's rich and diverse tap dance culture and history. Boyce, of New Jersey, was formerly involved with two distinct tap dance companies: an educational nonprofit group, and a strictly performance-based group. He was inspired by these two separate experiences to create an organization that combines the aspects of both groups. Matt studied at Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey with a focus of Music Education. He is an active leader in our workshops, and has also been a guest artist in residence for the Dance Department at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Untapped’s first workshop was held in 2014, and since then, we have held over 150 workshops all across the state. Untapped has taught workshops to and performed for Arkansans young and old, from all social demographics and levels of physical ability. Untapped has also performed for countless audiences all over the state at local events, fundraisers, concerts, etc. to further our mission of promoting the art of tap dance in Arkansas.
