Tap/Jazz & Tap/Hip Hop Classes

Tap/Hip Hop

Instructors use imaginative imagery to teach fundamental tap steps in a fun way while reinforcing rhythm, counting and strength. Al Gilbert’s graded tap technique curriculum is used to teach and reinforce basic tap skills and terminology. Skills taught will be the foundation for subsequent dance training as dancers move up to higher levels. The Hip Hop class teaches all of the basic dance skills like keeping rhythm, following choreography and developing body control through kid-friendly Hip Hop & Funk style music. In these highly popular classes, we also play games and even hold contests to create a fun and motivating learning environment for your child. One tap dance and one hip hop dance will be performed in the year end recital. Tap shoes required. Practice Hip Hop shoes should be clean bottom sneakers NOT worn outdoors. Performance Hip Hop shoes will need to be purchased in November. 

Monthly tuition for a 1 hour class is $52.45 per month plus a one time Annual Registration Fee of $25 per family.
