Gain rhythm, style, sound, and confidence while having fun!

Are you looking for a dance class designed with the beginner in mind? The Beginner Tap class starts at the beginning, leading new dancers through the basics of tap dance technique while introducing new movement concepts each week. Inexperienced dancers will develop body awareness and confidence in a supportive environment. You will learn a variety of tap styles from Broadway to Rhythm tap. Skill Development and Combos will focus on building flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement. The class emphasis is on developing proper tap technique, producing clear tap sounds, and having fun! Our goal with this program is to successfully transition new dancers into the intermediate Tap programs at J'Adore Dance. 

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

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!
