Our Tap classes focus on teaching students classical tap steps, rhythm and technique. Teachers are all highly experienced dance education professionals. Classes are kept small so that each student receives lots of personal attention.
Class consists of warm-up, stretching, steps and combinations. We emphasize technique, proper alignment and safety and take into consideration the individual physicality of each student.
The benefits of our Tap classes include increasing conditioning, strength, musicality, flexibility and coordination.
Exciting performance opportunities
Our younger students are showcased in our annual Junior Division Holiday and Spring Recitals and students in elementary through high school have the opportunity to perform in our annual Senior Division Holiday and Spring Recitals.

Focus on individual ability
Different Tap classes are available based on individual student’s goals and levels of ability. We are also happy to offer a place for older beginners to begin their tap dance studies in our Open Level Tap program.
IMPORTANT: Tap students are strongly encouraged to also take a weekly Ballet or Broadway Jazz class to complement their training.
Foundation-level classes are based on age and are open to beginners as well as students who have had some previous tap training. See our Description of Classes or Contact Us for more information.
