TAP

Beginning Tap
Ages 7-11

In this class, students will learn steps that use the different parts of the tap shoe to make specific sounds while building correct technique so as to give them a strong foundation for future tap training. Pairs wonderfully with Beginning Ballet or Ballet 1 (see our Young Dancer's page for more info).

This class will participate in the all school recital "Finale" in June.

Beginning Tap & Jazz
Ages 7-10

Can be taken in combination with Beginning Ballet, Ballet 1, or on its own (see our Young Dancer's page for more info).  Jazz will cover correct alignment, posture, and vocabulary and will learn how to apply what they have learned to other classes they are taking (musical theatre, ballet, etc.)

Tap 1

At this level, most of the basic tap vocabulary will be introduced/ reviewed. An emphasis on clarity and rhythmic consistency will be enforced as students progress. Throughout the term, exercises will improve integration and fluidity in linking steps together as well as introducing more complex combinations and rhythms.

Prerequisite: Beginning Tap/ Beginning Tap & Jazz or by special permission.

This class will participate in the all school recital "Finale" in June.

Tap 2

The focus of this class will be on rhythm, timing, dynamics, and steady increase of tempo. Stylistically, the concentration of study will emphasize Hoofer technique with some consideration for Broadway style. Attention will be placed on learning how to alternate between duple and triple pulses as students advance, providing personalized challenge to maintain each student's improvement.

Prerequisite: Tap 1 or by special permission.
