Tap I for Grown Ups

Ages 16 – 86

Class now offered online!
Saturdays, 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

(If you have had tap shoes on and taken enough to know a shuffle from a flap, this class is for you!  If absolute beginner, see my class offering in the summer!)
Tap dance has had an historical impact on all dance forms. It springs from our African and Irish ancestors. Our feet are percussive instruments. Tap dance provides a good cardiovascular workout and is a great stress releaser. Come improve your tap skills through listening, learning vocabulary and finding YOUR rhythm!
