What you'll learn in this tap class:

This class is a beginning to intermediate level designed for those with little or no tap dance experience. The core of the class will focus on the development of basic technical skills (shuffles, paradiddles, flaps, pickups, cramp-rolls, etc.), as well as the ear, or ability to understand music. It will promote the development of the core tap skills learned. 


A uniquely American dance form evolved from African-American and Irish-American folkdances, is an important component of contemporary American musical theater. Classes are designed to develop rhythm, style and sound. Students will learn a variety of tap styles from Broadway to Rhythm tap. Exercises focus on building flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement. The class emphasis is on developing proper tap technique, producing clear tap sounds, and having fun. As students’ progress through each level curriculum will become increasingly more complex and intricate.

 Tap shoes are required.


Tuition includes $40 Registration Fee (for New Students). Contact [email protected] to remove the Registration Fee if you have enrolled in the same class before.
