Tap Dance: Time Steps and “Voodoo” Choreography

Saturdays, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.

There are SO many Time Steps—let’s learn a Cramp Roll Time Step, a Travelling Time Step (also known as a Cubanola), a Bill Robinson Time Step and many others! We’ll also learn a fun dance to Aaron Neville’s “Voodoo”.

Tap dance has had a historical impact on all dance forms, and springs from our African and Irish ancestors. Our feet are percussive instruments: come lift your sole/soul!
