Tap classes are offered to students ages 4 and up and focus on rhythm, musicality and timing. All classes begin with an energetic warm-up, across the floor exercises and combinations. Our beginner students (Levels I thru III) explore the fundamental steps of tap dance, learn tap terminology and develop the ability to maintain correct body placement. Intermediate classes (Levels IV and V) further develop skills, focusing on clarity of sounds and increasing speed as well as dynamics, musicality, and history. Our advanced tap dancers (Levels V/VI) are challenged through improvisational exercises, intricate rhythms and footwork. These classes will perform to age appropriate music in the end of the year Recital Showcase.
