Intro Tap (Beginning)
Students ages 5 and up, learn the fundamentals of tap for the first time with upbeat music and positive encouragement. Each student receives one-on-one attention as well as group instruction to assure proper training in tap basics. Attire: Comfortable clothes or dance clothes that allow freedom of movement, tap shoes.

Tap 1 (Placement)
Students ages 7 and up, with some exposure to tap learn the fundamental combinations known world-wide. A variety of music is used to encourage response to the beat. Counting the beat and understanding proper anticipation so that steps are begun and continued in unison is a consistent goal. While this Level 1 class requires structure and discipline, students learn through laughter and creativity as they do repetitive drills as teams and independently. Attire; Comfortable clothes or dance clothes that allow freedom of movement, tap shoes.

Tap 2/3 (Placement)
Student 8 and up, with at least two years of tap are encouraged to try this Level 2 tap class. (Teacher will evaluate for most successful placement.) Students will find a fast paced environment where expectations are significantly increased from Level 1 in clarity and speed. All basic combinations are reviewed, with variations added for additional challenge. Primary focus of this class is precision and unity.
