$100 Summer Session Registration, $18 Drop-in rate available at the door ABOUT THIS CLASS Level II: Advanced Beginner Tap
invites tap dancers to expand their vocabulary, hone rhythmic skills and develop a stronger foundation of tap technique.

New and more complex rudiments, music fundamentals, time steps, and riff and paddle and roll patterns are explored.
This class moves at a moderate pace, allowing more time for repetition and review of technical and rhythmic concepts as we develop combinations and choreography.
Choreography will include both original and classic tap combinations. With a focus on anatomical efficiency in an effort to maximize balance and technical clarity, particular attention is devoted to proper alignment, initiation, and execution as the dancer develops solid timing, technique and precision. Students who
enroll in the full six-week session for
Level 2: Advanced Beginner Tap
will be given access to class videos for the purposes of practicing and reviewing material outside of class. REQUIREMENTS General understanding and demonstration of basic fundamental tap vocabulary (i.e.
shuffles, slaps, flaps, combined with basic weight shifts of
hop, leap, skip
and
ball change, and a basic
stomp
or
buck time step), and at least one year of tap training. This is a high-energy class and an engaging workout for the mind and body! Please wear tap shoes and comfortable clothing for moving with ankle visibility.
