Class Descriptions

Tap

Ray's Tap Class emphasizes technique through warm-up, across the floor, tap turns and combination. His style is greatly inspired by the MGM films of the 1930–50s, reminiscent of such tap greats as Fred Astaire, Eleanor Powell and Ann Miller. Ray uses intricate rhythms and fun footwork to create challenging, musical and entertaining choreography.
