TAP

Beginning Tap & Jazz
Ages 7-13

This upbeat class pairs wonderfully with Beginning Ballet or Musical Theatre 1/Intro, but can also be taken as a stand-alone class. The tap portion of this class will focus on steps that use the different parts of the tap shoe to make specific sounds, while building correct technique. Basic tap vocabulary will be introduced. In the jazz portion of this class, students will learn correct basic alignment, posture, and vocabulary they will use as they begin to learn specific jazz styles in Jazz 1 and up.

Parents are invited to observe class during our special Observation Week in the Spring.  

These classes perform in an all school recital, Finale, in June. 


These Friday classes are a part of our Enrichment Friday Program and can be combined with other classes to create a full day! Click here for more information.

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 & Jazz or by special permission.

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.
