New tap and combo tap/hip hop classes for children.
Classes are on-going throughout the school year.

Pre-school tap/hip hop combo class for 4 & 5 yr olds (5 yr olds still in pre-school). We will learn the fundamentals of tap dance and then put those steps into a fun routine. The second half of the class we get funky with fun hip hop steps and dances. *This class begins Thursday, October 3rd, 2:30-3:15. **Tuition is $45.00 a month. Pre-registration required.

3rd grade and above, level one tap for children. Focus in this class will be on the fundamentals of tap technique advancing to more complicated combinations of steps. These steps will then be combined into fun tap dance routines. *This class begins Thursday, October 3rd, 4:30-5:30. **Tuition is $55.00 a month. Pre-registration required.

*If the minimum number of students do not enroll, class will be cancelled.

**Tuition includes a winter performance in February and a late Spring performance, including costumes, in June. Children must have continually attended dance classes to be in these performances.
These classes are designed to be attended on a regular basis and tuition is due each month. They are not for occasional drop in or come a month, skip a month.

I have many pairs of tap shoes that I loan out and almost always, there is a pair that will fit your child. If not, you will need to purchase a pair. Of course, you can purchase a pair of tap shoes for your child if that is your preference. Hip hop shoes can be CLEAN ballet shoes or athletic shoes. Each student needs to provide their own clean hip hop shoes.
