This workshop is designed to introduce adults (and teens age 16 and up) to the Hip Hop culture and dance. The focus is to build a solid foundation to execute popular dance moves.

Absolute Beginning Tap Dance for Adults (On Site)

A tap workshop designed for adults to learn tap dance from the very beginning.

Fulfill a dream. Learn something new! Make music with your feet!

Tap dance is for any age, and a perfect dance style to learn as an adult. It’s so much fun, and easy to pick up.

It can be a great workout, strengthening the legs and feet, while increasing mobility in the hips, knees, and ankles. It is also extremely beneficial to cognitive functioning. (good for the brain!)

The focus is on learning single tap steps, then incorporating the steps into a series of combinations.
