Tap Technique

We’ve got your tap workout covered with our Tap Tonic class, now join us to polish your technique!

In these 40-minute small-group classes you’ll brush up on tap sounds, terminology, timing and rhythm without getting lost in a large-group setting. We’ll break down basic tap steps and lead a series of exercises to help you perfect each sound.

NEW in 2018, we’re adding a second section of Tap Technique so that we can better serve a wider range of tap levels:

Tap Technique – Beginner I

Build up from the basics! Each week, you’ll practice a variety of technical exercises and apply them to musical concepts. In addition to breaking down the sounds, you’ll also travel across the floor and learn short combinations.

No prior tap experience required, however the pace of instruction will be designed to accommodate a range of beginners: brand-new tappers as well as those who are returning to tap after some time away.

  • Tuesdays from 7:30 – 8:15 p.m.
  • Midtown, 1301 Locust St. 2nd Floor

Tap Technique – Intermediate

Time to get dancing! Utilize your tap skills to learn to learn rhythmic phrases and practice them with many different styles of music.

Participants should have at least 6-12 months of prior tap experience or be enrolled in Beginner I, and feel comfortable with movements such as flaps, shuffles, brushes, digs and steps.

  • Tuesdays from 8:15 – 9 p.m.
  • Midtown, 1301 Locust St. 2nd Floor
