Adult Tap Classes

Adult Tap classes from American Dance Institute performing at a Greenwood, Phinney Ridge Art Walk performance.

In addition to the adult tap classes on this page, American Dance Institute also offers teen tap classes, kid's tap dance classes for ages 8-10, and children's tap dance classes for ages 5-7.

 

Adult Tap Classes

Poetry in motion: Think Gregory Hines, Gene Kelly, Fred and Ginger.

Adult Tap Classes: We can get those two left feet moving like they were a right and a left. Your tap class develops the elements of a tap dance vocabulary, musicality (rhythm, timing and phrasing) and individual style while encouraging tap dance as a contemporary dance form. As soon as the tap shoes go on, you'll begin exploring the sounds and rhythms made possible through this original American dance style.

We have excellent tap dance classes for beginners. We also have fun high energy tap classes for intermediate level tappers. Watch their faces - they are having fun. The video on the left is an intermediate level tap class taught by Alyssa Brillinger. This routine was taught by instructor Julia Hart. The video on the right was a performance during the May 2018 Greenwood-Phinney ArtWalk event and choreographed by Alyssa Brillinger. That performance featured adults, teens and juniors all on stage together and the results are electrifying.

The BestRight Way To Teach A Dance Class.

This is a promotional clip for a new show entitled, Step Up-High Water. It is set to premiere on YouTube Red on January 31, 2018 with a first season consisting of ten episodes. This clip features Tap Extraordinaire, Savion Glover, playing a character who teaches tap to series regulars Tal (Petrice Jones) and Poppy (Kendra Oyesanya). This promo clip shows the dance studio as an intimidating, intense place. Dance schools don't have to be that way! You'll find that ADI is not the set of Dance Moms. Our teachers are patient, and our classes are fun! There's no place for arrogance in our classrooms -- from teachers or students. In our studios, there is No Snootiness Allowed! :)  You'll find respect, laughter and fun. And you'll learn to dance too!
