TapKids & Teens Classes
Be-bop. Diddley-doo-wop. Tip-tip-tap-tap. Bam wham zoo! Tap dance has the transformative power to make the body a dynamic sound machine. Each week when your child puts on their special dance shoes they will feel a lively beat bubble and boil within them. As tap dancers, they will live, breathe, feel and experience the playfulness, creativity and wonder that comes from making music. Students will develop a deep understanding of phrasing and musical form, improve rhythm and co-ordination and have a tremendously loud amount of fun. Classes follow a syllabus of studies that is routinely updated. Ba-dum-boom!
