Thursday 6 - 7PM 

Beginner Tap Dancing is designed both for those dancers who have little or no experience and for those looking for a class to refresh their basic technique.  Beginner Tap seeks to introduce and refine the foundational steps of rhythm tap dancing while simultaneously joining these steps together in combinations. Using a variety of musical styles, students will also examine the relationship between music and the tap dancer. Tap shoes are strongly encouraged but not required. (Jazz tap, oxford-style shoes preferred.) 



Intermediate-Advanced/Intermediate Tap Dance is for students who already have a firm grasp of tap dancing fundamentals and would like to continue their training.  The emphasis will be on developing the skills necessary for increasingly intricate footwork and more advanced combinations and routines.  Tap shoes are required.  (Jazz Tap “oxford style” shoes preferred.)
