Tap Classes

This upbeat, fast-paced form of dance uses the dancers’ own feet as a percussive instrument. Classes involve detailed footwork and articulation of sound, unbeatable for teaching muscle control, coordination and rhythm development. Tap is a great tool for self-expression as well as a high-energy, fun class.
