Have you ever wanted to tap dance, but not sure where to begin? In the Absolute Beginner Tap class, students will explore the rhythms and sounds of different techniques to then create their own combination. This step-by-step class will build skills to identify and demonstrate Tap coordination and terminology. Students are not required to buy any special shoes – hard sole shoes are all you need to learn these basic moves.
