Tap is style, rhythm, percussive and fun!

Fusing elements from Broadway and Rhythm tap, you will explore styles from traditional theatrical performance to rhythmic percussive. Each class will further develop basic skills including musicality. Skill development includes the “tap barre”, across the floor, and center floor combinations, instilling a strong skill set for the intermediate/advanced tapper.

Attire: Comfortable clothing (dance wear is welcome but not required).  Tap Shoes are required.

This class is a performance class for Winter Session, where you will be learning choreography to present at J'Adore Dance's recital in March. Dancers will be responsible for paying for their own costume.

Here at J’Adore Dance, we are lucky to have clients that have such a wide variety of dance experience. While this is exciting for us as a dance community, we want to make sure that our instructors are choreographing to the best ability of each individual. This year, all adult dancers will come together on the first class to then be placed into two groups. Groupings will be decided by the vision of our choreographers, ensuring that all dancers are able to showcase their full strengths.

* Week of January 9th: All participants will dance together during the first hour (one hour class only)

* You will be notified by e-mail of which time slot your instructor has placed you in (first hour or second hour). 

* Please note, you are not registering for a 2-hour dance class. Classes are one hour in length and dependent on group placement. By registering, you are committing to either time slot. Cancellation policies will not be altered due to class placement.

*** This is not an audition! J

*** This is a registered class only. Drop-ins and make-ups will be unavailable only for this 10-week session

Ashley

Instructor

Ashley started dancing at the age of 3 at her local community league. She then continued her love for dance at Sandra Gray School of Dance all the way until she was 18 years old. Ashley’s dance background includes Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Contemporary and Musical Theatre. Her strong foundation of Tap Technique derives from the completion of The Al Gilbert Syllabus Grades 1-7. She has received numerous Scholarships and Awards for Tap Solos and Duets. During Post-Secondary Education, Ashley took a short break from dance lessons to focus on her studies; but she always kept dance in her back pocket. And now, this passion for Tap Dance has led her to a variety of Adult Dance Classes in the city, including J’Adore Dance. When Ashley is not dancing, you will find her either colouring her hair various shades of purple, learning the Ukulele, doing makeup & hair, or searching for new YouTube Tap Videos to allow her to continue perfecting her craft. But above all, you will always find Ashley tapping in her car, at her desk, or in line ups---anywhere and everywhere!
