Class Descriptions

Tap

Gwen prioritizes three main elements in her tap class. First she focuses on fostering a solid understanding of tap vocabulary; using rudiments to drill basic skills for time, speed, and execution. Across the floor and basic rudiments warm up students' feet and minds for center work later in class. She then focuses on sequencing; taking steps and stringing them together to practice picking up choreography quickly.  Lastly, improvisation; Gwen provides a charismatic, gentle approach to the introduction of basic music theory and guides students to apply their musical knowledge to their feet.

Whether you are looking to strengthen your feet for an upcoming audition, in the city for fun, or looking to expand your knowledge and education further, all are welcome. Having a background in both musical theatre and commercial dance her style is an ever evolving melting pot as she continues to be inspired by people, places, and experiences daily.
