Tap Dance for Beginners

Ages 16 – 86

Saturdays, 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

You know shuffles, flaps, heel and toe drops and a time step perhaps?  This class is for you!

Tap Dance did not start in a dance studio: it sprang from African rhythms. Cultures around the world use percussion as medicine and healing. In Tap Dance, our feet become percussive instruments. We create rhythms, we create music, we become musicians.  Join a community of dancers who respect the history of tap dance and find joy in this artistic expression of Self.
