About The Event

No Previous Experience Necessary!

The rhythm and movement of tap, created by the metal taps on the heels and toes of a dancer’s shoes, transforms the dancer into a percussive musician.

This Tap Class is an Introduction to this dynamic dance discipline where students will learn rhythm, style and musicality through percussive footwork. Students will learn technique, terminology, and various styles of tap. Tap was initially popularized in Hollywood by such great dancers as Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Shirley Temple and more recently, by the hugely popular performers Tap Dogs, Stomp and Riverdance.

This class will teach the basic tap dance skills necessary for musical theatre auditions.

The program runs all year, from September to June, and culminates in a final Showcase Performance, with costumes and an audience!

There will be an open house offered to families at the completion of each term.
