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.
