About Adult Tap Classes

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

We can get those two left feet moving like they were a right and a left. Our tap classes focus on developing all the elements of tap dance. This includes movement vocabulary, musicality (rhythm, timing and phrasing), and individual style.

As soon as the tap shoes go on, you'll begin exploring the sounds and rhythms of this wonderful 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 our 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 Phinneywood Art Walk, choreographed by Alyssa Brillinger.

These tap dancers are from our Adult Tap II class. They are performing in the May 2018 Phinneywood Art Walk.
