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.
