Class Descriptions


I am inspired by all the great tap dance masters before me and around me, and hope this class will inspire all to love the dance even more! Class begins with a technique warmup. I will cover some of the more important points that can help problem solve the "challenges" of tap: weight shifting, relaxed ankles, identifying which muscles need stenghening, etc. A combination will follow, where we will explore being a musician and embodying space at the same time. For ALL tap dancers....hoofers, Broadway style, whatever!
