Tap Into Spring

Tap Into Spring

tap arms up

As in…tap dance into spring. Seriously, this is the month for tappers. We’ve got a brand new Tap Beginner Bootcamp, another tap technique deal and a fantastic Beyonce-themed Tap Tonic workshop.

Tap In: Beginner Bootcamp

We launched our specialty tap technique classes last fall and have been really stoked to find a community of dancers interested in honing their tap skills. But we discovered that these sessions can be intimidating for those who’ve never put on tap shoes before. So, we’re launching a Beginner Bootcamp perfect for tap newbies or perhaps those of you who haven’t tapped since that high school musical years ago. In this 90-minute session, you’ll go over basic technique and learn a vocabulary of fundamental steps, from digs to flaps to shuffles. Depending on interest, we could make this bootcamp a monthly occurrence.

Tap Technique Deal

Since tap is in the spotlight this month, we figured we might as well bring back our tap technique monthly pass deal: Pre-register for the small-group tap technique program for the month of April and get an entire class for FREE!

Brush up on tap sounds, terminology, timing and rhythm without getting lost in large group setting in this 40-minute small-group class. The pace and content will be geared toward advanced beginner to intermediate students since we now have a separate option for absolute beginners. Class is held right before our Thursday night Tap Tonic fitness, so you can stay afterward if you’d like to cap off your hard work with 50 minutes of cardio fun.

Our small group technique classes are normally $10 per person. This deal gets you all five weeks of tap technique in April for only $40! The price doesn’t get any lower than this, so snag your voucher now!

  • When: Thursdays from 5:30 p.m. to 6:10 p.m. on April 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30
  • Where: Midtown, 1301 Locust St., 2nd floor

“Dancing Social” deals are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Only valid for the dates specified, no make-up classes allowed. 

Beyonce Tapshop

We’ve done a Beyonce hip-hop workshop and a Beyonce Twerkshop, so why not a Beyonce Tapshop?? Instructor Pam gets the credit for this bright idea, but it was so good that you’ll have not two but three “Diva” instructors leading this 90-minute party. Angela, Sherrilyn and Pam — we’ll just call them the Destiny’s Child of Tap Tonic — will keep you on your toes (and heels) with a series of easy-to-follow routines. Expect to hear a range of Beyonce hits, from old favorites like “Crazy in Love” and “Irreplaceable” to new hits like “Grown Woman,” “7/11” and “Flawless.”
Just like our regular Tap Tonic classes, you don’t even need tap shoes to enjoy this special session (though it is admittedly more fun with taps). We’ll work in plenty of cardio to keep you sweating and of course, plenty of Beyonce style, too. You’ll be dancing without even realizing you’re tapping. Maybe we’ll even angle some floor fans on us so we can really feel like Beyonce performing in a music video.
If you’re not already psyched for this workshop, watch these videos of the Syncopated Ladies’ take on Queen Bey. (We want to know where they get their bad ass tap shoes…) We won’t be doing such intricate patterns, but we will certainly attempt to capture that same power and sass.
