Tap classes are designed to develop rhythm, style and sound. Students will learn a variety of tap styles from Broadway to Rhythm tap. Exercises focus on building flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement.

The following is an outline of the traditional program of the study of dance. This course can be used as a model for any student who wants to advance their technique. It can be applied to other dance forms as well. If this program is pursued aggressively, it can produce an entry level, professional dancer by the time the student becomes 17-19 years old. The progress of the student is a matter of personal choice and commitment. One does not advance a level by getting older, but by mastering more advanced levels of Artistry & Technique. You can begin dance training at any age. To become a professional, it is recommended that training begin between 6-9 yrs of age.
Pre-Professional Course of Study for Tap
For the purposes of this schedule, it is assumed that each level will take approximately 18 months to complete.
The actual progress of any individual will probably vary from this, based on many factors. If technique regresses for ANY reason, a student may be required to move down a level until they regain the strength to take the more advanced classes.
Level I- Beginning Tap - 1 or 2 classes per week depending on physical coordination or maturity.
Level II- Tap 1- Working on the basics of technique, rythms and turns. The student can expect to take 3 – 4 classes per week.
Level III-Beginning Virtuosity/Artistry-Tap 2-3- Working with the music, subtlety of expression and gesture. The student can expect to take 4 – 5 classes per week, plus 1 class in another dance style.
Our students have been accepted into trainee programs, talent agencies and have been given scholarships for summer intensives. We are excited to include your dancer into our dancing family. Whatever your goals are for your experience, we want to exceed your expectations!
