Tap dance enables a dancer to create a percussive sound with their feet.

Tap classes are offered to students ages 5 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 explore the fundamental steps of tap dance, learn tap terminology and develop the ability to maintain correct body placement. Intermediate classes further develop skills, focusing on clarity of sounds and increasing speed as well as dynamics and musicality. Our advanced tap dancers are challenged through improvisational exercises, intricate rhythms and footwork. All tap classes are 60 minutes and are offered levels I-VII and levels A-C with an introduction to tap class for ages 5-7.
