There are many elements to learning tap, technique, rhythm, musicality, and finally, putting all the learning together into routines.
Each class follows a progressive and graded course of exercises and technique, appropriate to the tap level of the class. This is then creatively applied in the choreography of a variety of routines, which develops musicality in moving from one step to the next, along with performance skills. Each dance reflects a different style of music and technique, and when completed, becomes part of the program in the end of year performances.
