Tap class meets once a week from August to June, ending the year in a full theatre production. We have 2 levels of tap this year and placement is based on level of ballet or by age (for students not in ballet).
- Tuesdays 3:30 – 4:30
Ages 8 years and Up: Tap is a combined class consisting of beginner – advanced students and is personally customized to meet the needs of each tapper. Beginner/intermediate level students will be introduced to and continue to polish basic tap steps while introducing various combinations of steps and turns as the students progress. Class is structured to accommodate beginners as well as continuing tap students while remaining challenging and fun for all. Each class concludes with games that allow the students to work on their tap skills in a fun, engaging manner.
Through each class the warm-up, traveling combinations, and center arrangements are designed to start at a beginner level and progress towards more advanced technique through the addition of turns, extra sounds, and acceleration of speed. Flash steps such as wings and variations on pullbacks are introduced at this level.
