Tap

Tap, characterized by the use of shoes with metal plates attached and is both a style of dance and music. It is an art form that uses shoes as percussive instruments, tap creates rhythmic-based sound, while still visually appealing with choreographed movements.

 

Tap is a uniquely American art form with a rich history of improvisation among masterful tappers creating new steps. Studying tap develops musicality, balance, and coordination.

** Advancement

Our primary focus is always to have a student placed in a level that is appropriate to each individual's proficiency and physical strength.  Advancement may occur at any time, however on average students are expected to remain in a level for a minimum of one year.  Your child may or may not be promoted every year.  If a child is promoted too soon, he/she will miss very valuable training.  Also, the child will struggle in the next level, which is unnecessary and could result in injury. A student who carefully develops his/her technique early in the curriculum will find advancement in later years to be smoother and more rewarding.
